Aristo Flieger Automatic 3H114

I got my first "pilot" watch recently. The Aristo Flieger Automatic 3H114 is a Pilot inspired watch. Powered by the tried and tested Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic movement.

The dial is similar to the vintage German flieger watch. Clean dial with luminous markers and luminous sword hands.

The 42mm stainless steel case is finished to a very high German standard. The stainless steel case is sand blasted to the right amount to give it the vintage looks. The short angled lugs aids in the wear comfort. What really sets this watch from the others is the diamond shaped crown.The display case-back allows you to admire the Aristo signed movement at work. The watch comes with a brown padded leather strap.





As highlighted earlier, it uses the Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic Movement. The hour, minute and second hands plus the hour and minute markers are luminous. It also comes with an extra large push-in flieger crown.



It has a black dial with Arabic numbering. The bezel is bead blasted and it has a hardened mineral crystal for the face. Dimension wise, it is 42mm diameter, 47mm including flieger crown.



It has a date at the 3 O'clock position. The case is sand blasted stainless steel and comes with a display case back. It has a water resistant rating of 50m. The strap is thick brown padded leather.



The strength of the the luminosity.



The history behind this watch brand started in the early 20th century. In 1907, Julius Epple in Pforzheim, Germany, founded the company ARISTO. For three generations, the enterprise went under the name Julius Epple, ARISTO Uhren- und Uhrgehausefabrik. In the beginning of the 90's, Helmut Epple, the grandchild of Julius Epple managed more than 100 co-workers. Because none of the descendants of the family could further the business, he sold the company to the trust enterprise UTW Uhrentechnik Weimar. In 1998, Helmut Epple found a suitable successor, Hansjarg Vollmer, which acquired the trademark of ARISTO Watch GmbH.

Below is a picture of the watch on my wrist.


Investment for this watch is RM1,212.71.
