The New Leica ZM Monochrom Watches Highlight The Depth Of Simplicity
The new Leica ZM 1 and ZM 2 echo the brand’s design DNA
The new Leica Watch Monochrom Edition timepieces take inspiration from the release of the latest Leica M11 Monochrom camera and honors the most fundamental principles of black and white photography, contrast and light. Remarkable tones and nuances stand out in a symphony of shadows and reflections rich with detail, revealing depth within simplicity and creating a harmony between two of Leica’s outstanding products. The distinctive design of the Leica ZM Monochrom Edition removes all colour and silver tones, except for the red dot, achieving a truly minimalist aesthetic.
Beautiful And Strong
Beneath the anti-reflective and strongly curved sapphire crystal are black rhodium-plated, diamond cut, sandblasted indices, and hands. The dial, including its feet, is milled from a solid block of high-strength aluminum to reinforce its shock-resistance. The Monochrom Edition watch strap is also identical to the texture of the M11 Monochrom camera and made of thick, strong-grained, black calf leather. It is also crafted using a cut-edge construction with hand-stitching to support the sturdy, yet refined look of the Leica ZM Monochrom Edition.
More Choice, More Fun
The Leica Watch collection consists of two models, both with the mechanical, hand-wound movement developed and produced in-house.
On top of that, following the holistic view on the Leica product portfolio, the “ZM” in the watch collection name stands for “Zeitmesser”, which is the German descriptive word for an instrument that measures and displays time. Launched in February 2022, the Leica Watch Collection immediately became a valuable asset for Leica enthusiasts and watch lovers, with only a select number available for purchase in a few Leica Stores worldwide.
A 150 Year Legacy
For more than 150 years, Leica has been a brand known for bold steps, engineering excellence, and timeless design. The new Leica Watch Monochrom Edition represents everything the company stands for, following on from a long-standing tradition of functional design, fine mechanical craftsmanship, and commitment to exceptional quality resulting in extremely reliable and iconic products.
