Aristo’s history began in 1907 when watchmaker Julius Epple founded a company that has been producing Aristo-Watches for three generations. The year 1998 is the year of the comeback for ARISTO as Helmut Epple; the grandson of the founder Julius Epple, found a replacement named Hansjörg Vollmer and new perspectives opened up for this traditional brand. Millions of Aristo watches were produced between 1907 and 1992, on some days up to 3000 pieces left the factory in Pforzheim. 

Hansjörg Vollmer followed a different vision: "We want to build Aristo up as an internationally renowned brand but this is not possible if we follow mass production, instead we should focus on quality over quantity.

With the passion of succeeding the family's watchmaking business and the impulse of creating something which can really represent the brand itself, Mr. Hansjörg Vollmer has devoted himself for years in developing his own caliber movement, the "ARISTOMATIC", the new self-developed automatic movement by Aristo.
ARISTOMATIC" is outfitted with an Inca bloc shock protection system and 26 jewels, such gorgeous achievement is the best proof to the trade that Mr. Hansjörg Vollmer maintains the traditional German watchmaking perfectly by continuing the development of the company's strength on manufacturing techniques, and injecting the spirit of striving perfection and uniqueness.
