Leica launches new watch, ZM 11

German premium camera maker has made yet another watch, the new ZM 11. It is powered by the automatic Leica Calibre LA-3001 movement, which is engineered by Swiss movement developer Chronode.

This movement has a said precision of -4/+6 seconds per day and an impressive 60 hours of power reserve. The ZM 11 is measured in five positions, guaranteeing accuracy at all times and is adorned with 35 jewels.

Encased in a 100m water-resistant titanium or stainless steel 41 mm shell, the ZM 11 comes with a double-domed sapphire crystal glass in front and a single-domed sapphire crystal on the case back.

The ZM 11 comes in three unique models – Titanium Launch Edition (250 units only), Titanium Coffee Black and Steel Midnight Blue. Each model comes with its a different dial. The dual-layered dial of the Launch Edition transforms from a sleek black to vibrant red, depending on the viewer’s perspective. The Coffee Black has a warm-black dial, while the Midnight Blue comes with a blue and black dial.

Regardless of the model, their brushed indexes have polished edges and luminous fillings to ensure high-visibility in any lighting condition. Their hands are diamond-cut, softly faceted, and feature a combination of deep brushed and sand-blasted surfaces that reflect beautifully as they catch the light.

Each model has a choice of three strap options – rubber, fabric and titanium – which can be adapted seamlessly to any occasion with the Leica Easy Change System – a mechanism reminiscent of a Leica camera’s lens release button.

The Leica ZM 11 will retail at a price starting from €6,800 (S$9,899) and available only at the Leica Store Raffles Hotel Arcade from 23 Nov.
