Kairos Chronograph is a chronograph by Chronoswiss with self-winding movement.

In accordance with the stated theme of Chronoswiss leader Gerd-Rüdiger Lang: "All of my watches are 100 years slow", this high-quality timepiece, which is inspired by the classical watchmaking of the 19th century, uses all available means of a previously granted, but today extraordinary skill. And with its chronograph function combines it effortlessly with modern standards of functionality and prestige.

Within the current product range this successful model impresses with Chronoswiss-typical fine guilloché pattern of the dial made of high quality silver as well as its costly crafted hands in classical shape. The time display on the dial is installed out of center, so that neither the hours nor the minutes hand can affect the reading of stopped seconds, minutes or hours. The current time is displayed where the design feature of the watch movement leaves enough space: at the "3". The case, assembled from 23 parts, satisfies highest aesthetic and functional standards.
