What to Love About This Watch: The Aurora Watch Company only produced watch movements for less than ten years. Surviving examples are more collectible than other makers that were mass-produced over many decades. This particular watch is pendant-set, a very uncommon feature for an Aurora watch, covered by U.S. Patent #406513. The blued “morning glory” style hands compliment the near perfect double-sunk dial, adorned with “Aurora Watch Co.” in elegant script. The movement features a sophisticated damaskeened pattern, beautifully contrasted with blued steel screws.

 

All watches are guaranteed to be in working condition and come with a 6-month functionality warranty.
(Warranty does not cover damage due to dropping, mishandling, or submerging)
