This is a new one for me, and a bit strange looking.
The typeface on the registers is different from that which we normally see on the Autavia; the racing stripe on the minute recorder also looks funny; not sure what to make of the main time-of-day hands.
You always wonder whether the black could have faded to this blue, but I can't recall seeing that.
Yes, there is always the possibility of a test dial from Singer or another dial maker.
Thanks for sharing this one. For the moment, we will add it to the list of mysteries!!
