Has anyone seen this dial execution before?

I got this one from a local AD in around 2002/2003. At the time I got it I was only attracted by its dial, and did not ask for too much information. But after I got it I never saw another piece again in all these years. I could not find it from the Intern...

But never in person. This was the same period as their big Jules XX 6th Day 43mm or so if I am not mistaken The signature in the power reserve is excellent!

Quite unique piece ! [nt]

I will review some publications in my library and see if it is in print. Perhaps it was a dealer or regional version.

No matter how rare a watch is, you would still find it somewhere on the Internet. But I don't know why I have no luck on this piece. Interestingly AP had confirmed with me its technical information - at least it is authentic. I am so much interested to kn... 

I've seen one!

My friend has the same piece that he inherited from his dad! Unfortunately, he could not provide me with more information about the piece and I have not found anything related online either. I intend to take it to AP House Hong Kong with my friend sometim...  

Wow! It's so great to see another same piece!

Here's the technical information: Case number: E33936 Movement number: 496145 Calibre: 2229/2845 Reference: 25730 I doubt if the Hong Kong AP could provide much information, but no harm to try.

That’s Fantastic

A very rare mystery AP - hope you get further details to share - best of luck.

I saw this Dual Time on another Post

If I recall correctly, there was another post about this model. Particular details escapes me, however, I believe the post was able to confirm that the model was a Hong Kong boutique edition.
