You know Leica as the German outfit that meticulously crafts next-level cameras. Now the brand has the perfect accessory to pair with the M10 hanging from your neck. Meet the L1 and L2. No, they’re not new cameras; they’re watches. Both marry creativity and precision just like their photograph-capturing brethren, and both were designed by Professor Achim Heine, who watched over the design of Leica cameras over the years. The brand made sure there were visual elements that tied these timepieces to the iconic cameras they also make, so you’ll find a cambered shape to the glass that’s reminiscent of the lens on a camera, a power indicator that looks like an old light reader, and a ruby in the crown that brings to mind the famous red dot of the brand. The watches will be limited and, we have to imagine, pretty pricey.
