In the Syntra training center, there was in the past a stone cutting workshop directed by Harry Jongen. This sundial was designed for a new part of the building. Time lines are represented by a gradual relief. See also the sundials from Herry Jongen in Maasmechelen and in Riemst.
The time lines ans the style placement are those of a South sundial. It is however derived from 19° to the West and since this cannot read a correct time.
This mistake is very common with sundials purchased in a garden market. Most of them are not facing the South.
