    Dork.

    Most of the Dunhill links are now like most of their accessories -- full of logos for an unsophisticated market. The toggle backs are also infra dig.

    You are not oblige to buy the links with logo.

    Use your brain and eyes to select links with no logo. The bulldogs, the turtles, the pigs, the facette links, the headlamps... have no logo.

    Then you wouldn't be a dork.

    What is the problem with toggle?

    This is a pair I've had for awhile. I may have even posted them in this thread. At any rate, I'm playing around with a white box and thought I'd throw this test shot up here.

    ^Thanks, LS! Snazzy links, yourself.

    According to the hallmarks these were made in London in 1938. The box seems to have store information in German (?), however, which would make an interesting combination during that period. I had these lightly buffed professionally but wanted to leave patina.

    Very classic - if the box says "Tilburg", it's Dutch.

    Can you read the hallmarks and the address on the box? I might be able to look them up for you.
