The ARISTO ME-193 Extreme Traveler


From the ARISTO Website: https://lnkd.in/eciZYzYr

The watch for "Big Travelers" who go everywhere

The ME-193 is a homage to Swiss-German adventurer Kolja Spori, who traveled to all 193 countries in the world, wrote the bestseller "I was everywhere" and founded the club of the most traveled persons in the world "ETIC". Dr. Spori is a specialist for inaccessible, remote and dangerous travel destinations. The BBC chose Spori as a "Travel Pioneer", the FOCUS described Spori as a "Gentleman Adventurer", the SüdwestPresse headlined "Dr. Dangerzone, a Man of the World".

The watch and wearer are connected by their homeland of Baden-Württemberg.

The Aristo Vollmer manufacture developed an automatically powered pilot's watch for "Dr. Dangerzone", based on the Observer 42, with an ocean blue dial, an elaborately embossed world map, super luminous hands, and a precise display of the 24 world time zones. As an absolute novelty, the time zones of the ME-193 show an "Extreme Traveler International Chronoscope" with exotic locations all over the world that Spori successfully reached with his ETIC expeditions. This personal travel diary includes the northernmost end of Siberia with the "Anabar" ice road near the Pole of Cold, where Spori survived -62 °C, or the founding site of the FARC peasant uprising in Colombia, "Marquetalia", which Spori was the first to visit in a peace mission under the umbrella of the United Nations, as well as the lonely rocks "Rockall", "Savage" and "Tristan da Cunha" rising out of the storming Atlantic, or the former ghost towns of Varosha in Northern Cyprus, Agdam in Karabakh and Djibloho in Equatorial Guinea.

Powered by a decorated rotor and the equally robust and precise Swiss Sellita SW200 movement, the ME-193 is delivered with 3 bracelets, a stainless steel link bracelet, a noble gray vintage saddle leather strap and a steel gray ballistic nylon strap.

The stainless steel case with anti-reflective sapphire crystal is waterproof up to 5 ATM and has a glass back with a clear view of decorated movement components and the inscription "More Humans visited Outer Space than Every Country". In fact, more than 500 people have been in space, but fewer than 300 in every country in the world.

ETIC members receive the ME-193 at a special price. Those who belong to the small circle of persons who have visited all 193 countries in the world will have their name immortalized by an engraving on the rotor from mechanical movement at the factory.

Recommended retail price: € 1,690.-
