    Opinion of Aristo Apucto

    Hi, I was thinking of purchasing this Aristo as my first semi nice watch
    and was just looking for opinions.

    Is the movement any good?

    I have a 6.75 - 7 inch wrist, and the watch is 44mm and looks like it wears big, will it look ridiculous on me?

    How are Aristo watches in general? I know they are not top of the line like Stowa.

    I appreciate any feedback you guys can give me, thanks in advance!

    The Molnija is a decent movement for its price point. I have a couple of watches I wear with this movement. From what I can see with my Aristo that was recently purchased they are an under valued brand. I purchased the Aristo 4H70 which I think is an excellent dress watch. It's stylish and sleek while at the same time being very affordable. Here are specs for the movement in the watch you are looking at.

    Molnija 3603 (RU) Mechanical movement
    Manual winding
    Diameter 36 mm
    Movement height 4,6 mm
    Jewels: 18
    Functions: hours, minutes, seconds
    Shock protection
    Frequency 18000 vph
    Power reserve 41 hours

    If I were you I would look at the Aristo 4H70. Here is a picture of my 4H70. I have 6.5" wrists and the watch is 38mm - 40mm with the crown.

    I have an Aristo Apucto. Definately a notch below Stowa. It's OK for the price though. the movement is actually finished off quote nicely and looks great via the display caseback.

    As to the size, it does wear big. With no bezel you have a very large dial on the watch. Overall it's a decent watch at it's price point, but the movement is well done.

    If I get a chance I will try and take a couple of quick pics over the weekend.

    I would however, suggest that it's worth considering to continue to save up...and perhaps shoot for a gently owned Stowa Marine original. It's worth the extra $$ and the wait.

    Molinja movement is a plus and Aristo the brand is OK for watches in that price range~Good luck!
