Founding Story : How we came to be
Jaime Walker, our Founder & CEO (Aristor Executive Officer), could’ve chosen a less-challenging time to launch his vision. But Walker wanted to “start at the top”—especially once the “elites” told him there was only one place on the planet capable of sourcing high quality timepieces.
Rather than lowering his sights, Walker set out to prove them wrong—by assembling a first-rate team of watchmaking legends and founding a new place that, despite being a hemisphere away, was still the first choice of everyone from Apple to Bose for the reliable precision manufacturing needed to produce their brand-defining products.
The result? A groundbreaking watches collection, at an equally groundbreaking price.
While those timepieces swiftly sold out, Walker’s commitment to authenticity with an attitude bordering on audacity didn’t. That’s why a full range of complications—including open-heart/skeletons, chronographs, dive watches, dress watches and dual-time/travel watches—quickly followed tourbillon watches debut.
Could Walker have “sold out” and used beautiful people and places to sell his watches, instead of beautifully crafted dials, movements, and cases? Oh yeah—and he would’ve sold way more watches (and in the process, his soul and vision).
Luckily he didn’t, and to this day Aristor continues to be the standard for seriously crafted timepieces at seriously grounded prices.
We aim to work with top watch manufactuers and this has always been in Aristor's DNA, with over 40 Brands collaborations, we aim to strive for hundreds more in the times ahead of us.
