ARISTO was founded in 1907 by Julius Epple in Pforzheim, a center of jewelry and watch making in Germany. The company produced timepieces for the next three generations. Today Aristo Watch Co. has joined forces with Ernst Vollmer (Vollmer Watch) and they are concentrating their efforts as a single company (i.e. Aristo/Vollmer). ARISTO today manufactures mechanical and automatic classic and military inspired watches with cases and bracelets from the parent company Ernst Vollmer GmbH & Co. and parts from the WPG Group. All automatic movements used in Aristo watches are imported from Switzerland. This makes for a perfect combination of German designed and manufactured cases and bracelets with high quality automatic or mechanical movements.
