Wristwatches from Pforzheim: ARISTO watches and metal strap manufacture. High-quality material, meticulous workmanship and exclusive design for every Made in Germany wristwatch from the ARISTO brand fulfils these quality demands to perfection.

High-quality material, meticulous workmanship and exclusive design – every “Made in Germany” wristwatch from the ARISTO brand fulfils these quality requirements to perfection.

The watchmaker Julius Epple founded the ARISTO watch and watch case factory in Pforzheim in 1907. Every collector who specialises in Pforzheim watches owns at least one classic from the ARISTO founding period. Until 1992, several million wristwatches were produced.

Hansjörg Vollmer revived the traditional brand in 1998. Just ten years later, ARISTO wristwatches from Pforzheim were delivered to 20 countries in Europe and overseas. Trade journalists confirm that the brand has achieved a high rank in the circle of internationally renowned watch labels. This global success was made possible by the fact that the company has evolved from a producer of large quantities into a watchmaker for handcrafted, sophisticated editions.

Managing director Hansjörg Vollmer vouches for this: “Quality comes before quantity”. Some small series have become classics in Germany, but especially also in the USA and Asia.
