Drawing inspiration from its M11 Monochrom camera, Leica has revealed two new watches that honor the aesthetic essence of black and white photography.

Arriving in a minimalist design, Leica’s ZM Watch Monochrom Edition omits all metallic hues and colors, except for its signature red dot on the push-crown. Understated and nuanced, the 48mm timepieces are encased in PVD-coated stainless steel that emanates incredible details and depths when hit by light. This also complements the dial, which is crafted from high-strength aluminum and plated in black rhodium.

Adding to its sleek and sturdy aesthetics are diamond-polished indices, black lacquered second hand, as well as anti-reflective and scratch-resistance sapphire crystal. On top of that, thick and strong-grained black calf leather is used to craft the watch straps — another subtle but faithful nod to the M11 Monochrom camera’s sturdy straps.

Retailing for £9,900 (approximately $12,365 USD), The ZM 1 operates on its namesake calibre complete with date display, quick date setting, power reserve, and mode indicators. Meanwhile, the ZM 2 will be priced at £13,300 (approximately $16,612 USD) with the additional second-time zone GMT function, and day/night indicator. Both models will be available for purchase starting May 15 at selected Leica stores worldwide. Head to Leica’s official website to inquire about its availability and more.
