ENICAR did good business with many military forces all over the world during both World Wars. After W.W. II ENICAR had to focus on non-military models. Ariste Racine Jr. was ready. In 1953 a new factory and high end laboratory in nearby Oensingen was opened, where all the movements were 'ultrasonically' cleaned. A new modern method that was printed or engraved on all watches as a marketing tool. ENICAR was also able to epilamize (= avoiding oil to run on) surfaces of its movements which reduced wear and service costs and enhanced reliability. Modern production methods were introduced and sales rocketed. In the early 1950's over 70,000 movements were produced annually.

ENICAR developed interesting watches, which were sturdy and reliable. On July 16, 1954 ENICAR received its first 'Gangschein'

(certificate of accuracy) of the Neuchâtel forerunner of the COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres = Swiss Official Inspection of Chronometers; founded in 1973) for its 1010 Caliber.
