Premium camera manufacturer Leica is set to launch its first line of watches, the simply named L1 and L2. True the brand's aesthetic, the made-in-Germany models feature a classic look, both using a 41mm stainless steel case and hand-wound movement with a 60-hour power reserve, developed exclusively for Leica by Lehmann Präzision GmbH. While the L1 features time, date and power reserve functions, the L2 will also feature a dual-time GMT function through a rotating internal bezel, as well as day/night indicator. Both are finished with a diamond-embossed black calf leather strap with a stainless steel pin buckle. Pricing will reportedly start at around $11,800, with a launch date expected sometime this year.
