It's difficult to tell as the mark is blurred, but I think that the lower set of marks could be Dublin import marks with the date letter R being probably the one for 1959.

The use of .935 silver narrows it down to Austria, Germany and Switzerland. I guess Switzerland is the most likely source given its large watchmaking industry. Sorry, that's the best I can do.
