According to information from the Deutsche Bahn Museum there was only a requirement for the personnel to have a correct going watch. No information available that the Bahn did provide the watches. The personnel had to obtain a watch themselfs.

DV 004 Dienstanweisung für die Bahnhofschaffner vom 1. Juli 1942 im § 7
(2) Er muß im Dienst eine richtig gehende Uhr und, wenn angeordnet, eine Handglocke, ferner beim Dienst an der Bahnsteigsperre eine Lochzange und, soweit notwendig, bei Dunkelheit eine weiß leuchtende Handlaterne bei sich führen.

You can find Junghans pocket watches with the winged wheel "Flügelrad" symbol on the dial, but I could not find information, evidence about whom ordered these watches.
