In the early days of Chronoswiss, remnants of mechanical movements from the manufacturer Enicar that were no longer produced were encased in watch cases and sold. Today's collection consists of mechanical watches and also includes limited editions. Characteristic features of the watches include the onion crown, the knurled bezel and screwed bracelet bars.
Typical complications included the use of quarter-hour repeaters and the introduction of the first skeletonised automatic chronograph (Opus model). Using original tools from the 1940s, the Klassik Chronograph model was produced. The Orea model features an enamelled dial. Among the brand's most famous models to date is the Régulateur, the first mass-produced wristwatch with a regulator dial, introduced in 1987 and available from 1988. Over the decades, it developed into the brand's icon, which has been constantly refined. In 2016, Chronoswiss introduced the Flying Regulator, the first Regulator model with a multi-level dial.As of December 2006, the company was based in Karlsfeld near Munich.
Chronoswiss produced less than 5000 watches per year in 2012 (estimated). At the beginning of 2012, the previous owner family Lang sold their shares in Chronoswiss Uhren GmbH to the Swiss entrepreneurial family Oliver and Eva Maria Ebstein, based in Lucerne on Lake Lucerne. The company's headquarters have since been relocated to Lucerne. In August 2013, Chronoswiss announced that the Karlsfeld site would be completely abandoned.
The headquarters of the independent family business has been Lucerne since 2014. In addition to mechanical timepieces, the ateliers there also produce limited editions and custom-made watches, some of which are refined with historical crafts such as enamel or guilloche.
