    Great - both of them. Shame about the Jaccard movement's condition... not a common piece, no doubt...

    Pmwas,
    The movement( just missing regulator and hairspring) and dial are going to be restored by a master watchmaker Also a proper hunting case correct to the period of the watch will house this rare bird.

    Hey all, I'm a newbee and inherited several Aurora's from my dad. Two have movements that are higher grade. Looking for any info you guys can give me. Also the Puzzle movement has a broken mainspring and I'm looking for someone in the Chicago area to repair it. My dad was from Aurora by the way. Thanks 013.jpg 017.jpg 016.jpg

    Hi,

    Welcome to our site.

    The Aurora on the left is a grade 7-Htg which was RR grade in its time. The one on the right is a grade 14 (if it's pendant set) or 22-OF (if it's lever set).

    I can recommend a friend in Chicago who does repairs. I will pm the name to you.

    Greg

    This thread is rather old but, just in case, does anyone have any new high grade Auroras to share?
