Just like the title says, Leica Watch Monochrom Edition was inspired by the latest release of Leica M11 Monochrom camera, the design pays tribute to the most fundamental principles of black and white photography, contrast and light. It takes years of expertise to design and develop this watch, it also takes the right amount of stubbornness to create a beautiful product that’s so underrated yet alive with detail. The watch features great tones and nuances that stand out in a symphony of shadows and reflections rich with detail, simplicity that creates harmony between two of Leica’s outstanding products.
This model is part of Leica Watch collection, except that it removes all color and silver tones, except for the red dot. Leica Watch Monochrom Edition is able to achieve truly minimalist aesthetic. Under that anti-reflective and curved sapphire crystal, there are black rhodium-plated, diamond cut, sandblasted indices, and hands. The dial is milled from a solid block of high-strength aluminum to reinforce its shock resistance. The strap is identical to the texture of M11 Monochrom camera, it is made of thick, black calf leather and crafted using a cut-edge construction with hand-stitching to support sturdy yet refined look of Leica ZM Monochrom Edition.
