02 - 2021 New dial variant Aristo AR2538 Harley

12 - 2020 Aristo: Swiss movement with micro-rotor

ARISTO: Swiss Movement with micro-rotor

Special series of 50 pieces with rare Harley 2538 self-winding movement

Already in 2003, Aristo CEO Hansjörg Vollmer caused a sensation when he launched the AWARD 2003, a series of 500 pieces with the Ronda automatic movement Harley 2538, which was produced from 1981 to 1989. Now Vollmer strikes again.

The rare movement with the unusual micro-rotor is housed in the same case as the UNITAS 6300. Only 50 pieces of this model will be produced under the designation AR2538Harley.

The 11 1/2 line movement works with 21,600 vibrations per hour, which corresponds to a frequency of 3 Hertz. It is equipped with reliable Incabloc shock protection and regulated to a maximum of + 10 sec/day. The power reserve is 40 hours. The movement is nickel-plated in the standard finish as it was delivered at the time. Only the rotor and movement retaining ring are given a perlage finish in the ARISTO workshops.

Proven case technology: 47 mm case, hand-polished, with sapphire crystal on top and an XL mineral glass back on the bottom, water-resistant to 5 atm, equipped with a grippy 8 mm onion crown, luminescent numerals and hands with Superluminova luminous material. A hand-sewn vintage leather strap by Kaufmann completes the model.

Hansjörg Vollmer: "If you are looking for a self-winding watch for your collection without a rotor blocking the view of the movement, our AR2538Harley is certainly the right choice."

11 - 2020 ARISTO: Chronographs with Sellita SW 500

ARISTO: Chronographs with Sellita SW 500

Swiss made precision combined with Pforzheim watchmaking tradition

The chronograph design of the new series has been revised. The timepieces are powered by the Swiss chronograph movement Sellita SW 500 and assembled in our workshops in Pforzheim. They, therefore, bear the label "Made in Germany".

Aristo CEO Hansjörg Vollmer: "We manufacture every single watch with great care and use only Swiss quality movements. Every ARISTO model combines the latest Swiss Made precision with Pforzheim watchmaking tradition".

The Sellita SW 500 has 25 jewels, 28,800 A/h, Incabloc shock protection, is equipped with a Glucydur balance and fine regulation. The rotor has a new design and, thanks to a higher oscillating weight, is more efficient than that of comparable chronograph movements.

10 - 2020 Observation Watches PVD Bronze

ARISTO: Observation Watches unbranded

The observation watches "VINTAGE PILOT" and "VINTAGE BEOBACHTER" look as if they had seen several uses. Their stainless steel cases are completely coated with PVD bronze, as if they had developed this beautiful patina over the years. The slightly worn-looking leather strap with rivets – and handmade in Germany – matches it. The hands and indexes have a cream-coloured Superluminova coating that glows in the dark for a very long time. Inside the watch ticks the Swiss automatic movement Ronda R150.

Dimensions: Ø approx. 42 mm, case thickness approx. 11 mm. If it has to be a pilot's watch – why not one with a historical look? The watches are equipped with sapphire crystal and an 8 mm fluted crown, a closed back with engraving and serial number.

The recommended retail price is 650,- Euro.

TRIPLE XL – the largest wristwatch on the market

ARISTO & Messerschmitt: tradition meets classic

Triple XL edition of observation watches

Ever since renowned manufacturers and brands began to specialise in their respective strengths, joint projects have been common in the watch industry. A typical example of such a cooperation is the interpretation of the German Air Force's "B Watch", a classic among pilot watches, in an unprecedented size.

When two classics of watch and aviation history work together, the result must also be something to be proud of. With the mix of ARISTO and Messerschmitt, the name of this watch series already says it all:  Triple XL-Edition.

The Triple XL-Edition is a pilot's watch with a case diameter of 65 mm. The rest of the dimensional data identifies these timepieces as very distinctive men's watches. The second hand alone is 25 mm long and originally comes from a dial indicator.

The strap is 30 mm wide and the onion crown is 10 mm thick. The series is marked on the back and consecutively numbered with a serial number, like the observation clocks of the German Luftwaffe at that time.

Hansjörg Vollmer, Managing Director of ARISTO, explains: "We designed the two dial variants and the case in response to explicit requests from men with large wrists and collectors, and we use it exclusively for the Triple XL edition." Indeed, this watch achieves the greatest attention and conversation due to its size, which has never been offered before.
