    Dunklings was and is a jewelry retailer.

    Good, in-focus pics of the watch, especially
    of the movement (works), could reveal the
    actual manufacturer.

    Many a long years ago I used to drop off and pick up items at Dunklings Melbourne; I was an Apprentice Optical Mechanic at E Wood & Co; the items were pince-nez Glasses and Jeweled lorgnette Glasses. Regards Ray

    Hi,

    That movement could well be an early Omega or Brandt.

    they sold imported movements, don't believe they ever made movements in house. you see a few Elgins made for them and in wristwatches you'll find rolex movements as well as alot of other swiss in handley cases.
