Aristo started way back in 1907, for three generations making precision and reliable timepieces for collectors around the world. When we think of "Watches from Pforzheim," clean and minimalistic designs quickly come to mind, and you are not amiss.
This design can be seen in their new Dessau collection, inspired by their Bauhaus Dessau architecture from the early 90s.

Architect Walter Gropius founded the term "Bauhaus" in Weimar located in Germany from the early 1920s; that bring forth minimalism, simplicity, and elegance into art and architecture.
Applying these elements into timepieces, the Ref.7H108 Dessau Automatic Blau has a clean, minimalistic dial that makes it elegant enough to be dressy and simple enough for daily wear. It is full of heritage with some modern attitude. The Arabic hour markers are reminiscent of the 1970s typeface designed by Ed Benguiat and Victor Caruso. This can be found in other German Brethren like Nomos and Stowa.
The Aristo Dessau Automatic Blau edition also has a sunburst dark blue hue that allows the wearer to enjoy different shades of blue in different lighting environment. Depending on lighting, the dial can turn from evening blue to midnight blue — something you will need to see in person to admire.

The design also features a date window at 3 and flaring steel hands, keeping things the old school way without being too playful.
Onto the case, the simple case design as its name implies has a 38.5mm case and thickness of only 10mm. It features finely satin-brushed bezel and case along with arched lugs, giving it a classic 1930s dress watch vibe. While it showcases a more traditional form, Aristo decides to bring in some modern element by having an opened case back for the wearer to admire the Swiss Made ETA2824-2 automatic at work.
Like all Aristo watch, the Dessau Automatic Blau is made especially for Gnomon Watches with a flat sapphire crystal.

The watch also has a water resistance of 50meters that allows wearers to enjoy some outdoor activities without any worries. To complete the Bauhaus looks Aristo pairs it with a matching dark blue 20mm genuine calf leather with alligator embossing. The overall looks are fun and exciting, and a unique take on the Bauhaus design. At 38.5mm size, the Dessau Automatic Blau Edition wears well making it more desirable than ever. The overall slim profile and clean case design make it an excellent everyday watch, male or female.
