This Aristo watch has an interesting case, with hidden lugs at the top and exposed at the bottom, creating a horseshoe style case design.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
From the production dates of the manual wind AS1002 movement, combined with the styling, we can date this watch to being produced circa 1950. Aristo had been making watches since 1914.
The combination of the horseshoe case and the fluted bezel is most unusual, and attractive, and this is combined with a quality hand winding movement. The dial, with the explorer style 12, 3, 6 and 9 numbers and applied stick markers between, has consistent and even patina across the whole dial that can only be seen at certain angles. The sub seconds dial is quartered and slightly recessed into the main dial. Fitted with a new leather strap.
This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
