The only light I can shed on these history-laden watches is this :
Dunkling used to be a jeweller and watch retailer in Vienna, Austria .
Among other things, he was a Rolex concessionary.
Christian, Many thanks for your comment, I had assumed that Dunklings would have been a British concern.

Hello I am wondering if you are adding to your collection of cuff links. I have some eagle and crown gold ones I came across today at a thrift store. Your museum has been great to learn from.
