Handcrafted foreverness and engineering excellence focused on the essential: Leica ZM 1 and Leica ZM 2 (formerly referred to as Leica L1 and L2). The first Leica watch collection is the perfect combination of more than 150 years of Leica’s brand culture, visionary design and unmatched quality. Clear and distinctive elementary design features, functionality, durability and sophisticated creative details set new standards in the watchmaking segment and ensure the new Leica is both: timeless and precise.
All functional details contain subtle references to signature features from Leica’s rich history.
The domed watch glass reminiscent of a camera lens; The rhodinised and diamond indices and hands, including the elegant décor caressing the second dial, that follow the typical delicate and simple design principles by Leica; The patented, “red-dot” push-crown inspired by a camera’s shutter release, and developed as an homage to Leica M’s designers Ludwig Leitz II and Heinrich Janke.
The precise movement is framed by a transparent back and front glass made from non-scratch sapphire crystal with double-sided anti-reflective coating. Everywhere you look there are distinctive details, such as the shapely and sophisticatedly finished stainless steel case or the exquisite knurling on the crowns.
Inspired by the shutter release button of a camera, the Leica watch push-crown is pressed, not pulled. Pressing the crown of the Leica ZM 1 and Leica ZM 2 triggers the second-hand reset, and the status display on the dial switches from white to red. This mechanism can also be used to set the date with another date button, while pressing the crown again re-engages the movement. The Leica ZM 2 also features a GMT-crown that can display both time zones with a single hand.
