    Aurora is a brand name of Edouard Quartier, manufacturers of movements, watch cases, dials from Neuchâtel, Les Brenets, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, registered 1888 (acording to Mikrolisk)

    Others can tell you more about the watch itself.

    If you can provide an image of the inside of the back cover, there could be markings showing if the case is made of silver and what type.

    Just by sight build anytime between 1882 (silvermark) until 1900. Since aurora was registred 1988 should this mark be the earliest point. In a few cases a registration followed after the registration but usually not in the late 19 century anymore. Very funny design of the dial. Depending on the size its a watch for a man . I'm not sure which region prefer this design might be within the alps.
    The escapement looks a bid unusual and I can't see the lever but it should be there for my opinion.I guess a 15 jewels, crownwinder in a silver case with a funny dial design for the "man in the hills" ? out of the end of the century.

    It's a Swiss lever movement - you can see a pallet under the balance wheel to the left of the regulator arm.

    True, but not a typical movement construction.
    It is a bit "out of the normal" I feel.
