hi, all my mm25 just came in, i bought both the california and gmt version.
got it from my secret agent in japan, was told that a total of 300 was produced for three models, limited production of 100 each for california dial, normal dial and gmt.
prepaid for them in november last year, just got them yesterday.
was produced for the japanese domestic market, and ken trading does not sell these models to international buyers via their japanese/english website.
i paid a premium to get them thru the "secret agent" as ken only sell these 3 models to international buyers thru his secret agent good friend. this agent was allocated 10 pcs for each model for the international mkt.
I am interested in your opinion of GMT- is the cut - out dial stamped or laser cut? I'm interested in the watch, but I have seen some prototype pictures that seem to indicate the numbers are punched (as the edges of the numbers like 9 are curved as opposed to being flat)
Apologies to the zillion people who wrote to me...

Got this watch through a taiwanese friend who knows the "secret agent". From what I gather there are no stocks left of the 10 each, and that the watches will be made available through the Ken Trading site when they are ready to be sold.
