Did you get this one Mike? How do you like it?
Yeah it came today Steve. It looks good. The MOP pops. So far, so good with the winding. I gave it about forty spins and jumped off the crown like a hot potato according to Wing and RONDA instructions .. don't do it!

Sorry I didn't answer right away Steve. I was eating lunch and it was a sloppy, gooey, chewy mess.

It appears the RONDA R150 → (first ever for me) might have been calibrated by Aragon. I added it to the group making thirty-two currently running live and checking daily. I noticed the lumed crown has an octagonal feel unlike others in the group. The operation is very smooth.

It looks like the prices were hiked up $35.00

Left Tn for 2 long weeks in good ole fla.
I left Friday and got into Delray after 11pm hoping to go Aragon’ showroom to see the DM 42. with R-150.
I didn't Want to order it and let it sit on my porch for 2 weeks.
MY point is, I went to the showroom this a.m.not realizing you need to call ahead to enter the showroom.
Christina answered the door and was very kind to let me in, very helpful with my purchase.
Thank you Christina for all you did. Just wanted to let all my wit friends know.

No need to let something sit anywhere if you're not going to be home. These days you can track a package every step of the way and in a click of a button put it on hold or other instructions.

Christina is an asset to the brand and very helpful to customers. All of my correspondence with her was always a pleasure from 1162 miles away.

So what did you get. I read in the past to call ahead, but I have been on the Aragon friends FB page for over a year.

Ten days going and seems to doing much better compared to the RONDA specs.

ACCURACY:​

According to official documentation by Ronda, the calibre R150 is claimed to have an average accuracy rating of +/- 12 seconds per day with a maximum deviation of rate up to 30 seconds per day. Isochronism after 24 hours with +/-20 seconds per day. Ronda tests each movement in two positions at the factory. The R150 is equipped with an index system regulator for fine-tuning accuracy.
