About Aristo

ARISTO was founded in 1907 by Julius Epple in Pforzheim, Germany's jewelry and watchmaking center. Today, Aristo Watch Co. has joined forces with Ernst Vollmer. 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.

Today, Aristo offers a wide range of watches, from classic designs to aviator Flieger style models known for their excellent value.

Why Manual Winding for Aristo Watches?

The most common reason for Altanus watches to be hand wound is so that you can set the time accurately with it, this saves you from having to reset the watch as often, it also means that the watch will always be accurate and reliable.
Winding a watch is a complex endeavor, but for many watch lovers, it is one of the joys of interacting with a watch.

Aristo Watch Manual Winding Steps

  1. Mechanical movement watches

Before using the watch you will need to wind it up by turning the winding crown several times between your thumb and index finger until it stops.
Fully wound up, the movement is powered for approx.

  1. Automatic watches

An automatic wristwatch is wound by a rotor that moves back and forth during the normal activities of wearing it and in so doing winds the spring.
A fully wound self-winding movement runs for around 40 hours. If the watch is only worn occasionally, the spring must first be started by hand, by moving the crown back and forth three to four times using the thumb and index finger. An overwind protection mechanism stops the spring from being wound too far.

Aristo watches will wind correctly in most circumstances. Generally speaking, Archimedes' self-winding movements need to rotate 650-820 revolutions per day, and most of them can be wound clockwise.

If you cannot find your watch model (or movement) in this watch, you can try to determine your Aristo winding mode. You should choose the combined winding mode (CW+CCW) and minimum turns per day (TPD).  Then put the watch into the watch winder and check the accuracy of the time displayed by the watch after a few days. If you run behind, you need to increase the TPD by one level.

Aristo Watch Time Adjustment Method

Pull out the winding crown so that it clicks once.
Turn the winding crown in a clockwise direction to adjust the date at speed.
Set the date to the day before.
If your watch has a day-date setting, set the weekday by turning the winding crown in an anti-clockwise direction.
Now pull the winding crown out as far as it will go.
Turn the winding crown so that both hands turn in a clockwise direction. The date will click over to the next day as you turn through every 24 hours, then set the hands at the actual time of day. Make sure the hands pass "12" twice if you set the time after midday.
- For setting the time to the second, the second-hand stays in its position when the winding crown is entirely pulled out ("hack set").
Push the crown in fully now to get your watch started.

Please note: The date calendar of the chronograph automatically switches to the next day between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. During this period, the date calendar should not be changed and the time should not be put back in its original position (risk of damage).Self-winding watches with screw-down crowns some watches are equipped with a screw-down crown. To wind the watch manually and set the date and exact time, turn the winding crown counterclockwise. After setting the time, push in the winding crown again and carefully screw it into place. The watch is only water-resistant when the crown is screwed back in place.

Can I Always Wind my Aristo Watch Manually With the Crown?

It’s okay to do this once in a while, but not too often—especially if your watch has a screw-down crown.

First, the gears and other parts of an automatic movement will wear out faster when wound with the crown, and the same goes for the screw-in crown system, as it is not designed for heavy use. Self-winding watches should be worn for at least eight hours a day to make the most of their power reserve, so rather than letting your automatic watch's power reserve drain, invest in a simple automatic watch winder.
