Leica Camera has teamed up with HODINKEE, the foremost destination for all things in the world of horology, to debut a stunning new special edition set inspired by the faded bezel of a vintage timepiece owned by HODINKEE founder and CEO Ben Clymer. Limited to just 250 sets worldwide, the Leica M10-P “Ghost” Edition for HODINKEE, which includes a Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens, is a nod to the desirable “ghosted” aesthetic emerged through the natural aging and wear of a wristwatch bezel, creating an equally beautiful new look and feel with a storied past.

“The Leica M10-P “Ghost” Edition for HODINKEE is the realization of not only my fascination of how timeless object age and evolve, but a partnership with a brand that has been a part of my life for a long time and one that I greatly admire," says Ben Clymer, CEO of HODINKEE. "This limited edition was inspired by the first dive watch that I purchased. In its original condition, the stainless-steel watch would have had a rich black dial and bezel, and markers that were bright white and luminous. With time and exposure, the dial and bezel faded to gray, and the markers turned cream. This “ghosted” watch is among the most beautiful and charming examples of an interesting life lived."

The “Ghost” Edition remains true to Leica’s minimalistic design with the purposeful omission of the Leica red dot logo and is finished entirely in matte gray with white and silver accents. The top and bottom plates of the camera body and the lens are coated with a matte gray paint with white enamel-filled engravings, whereas the body is covered in a gray cowhide leather for a soft, stylistic feature point. The muted color tones evoke the “ghosted” look that inspired the limited-edition camera yet offer a stylish design that stands on its own.

The “Ghost Edition” set maintains all the technical features of the original M10-P, naturally drawing parallels between the mechanical complexities of the camera with the intricacies of fine watchmaking. From the incredibly quiet mechanical shutter that barely utters a whisper to the touch and feel of the shutter speed dial and aperture ring that harken to the turning of the rotating bezel of a dive watch. Even the mechanical movement of the watch – its beating heart house within its case, not visible to the user – plays counterpart to the coupled rangefinder of the camera, it too hidden from sight under the camera’s top plate. Both perfect examples of precision engineering and mechanical excellence, relying on the motion and actions of their users to operate in harmony.

Meanwhile, the lens included in the set – the Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH. – is one of the most versatile M lenses. Whether it is a shallow depth-of-field look when shot wide-open, high-contrast available-light applications or landscapes with immense depth of field, the lens performs wonderfully in any situation.

The Leica M10-P “Ghost” Edition for HODINKEE will be available beginning December 12, 2019. The edition is limited to only 250 camera sets worldwide, each of which bears a distinctive serial number. The set also includes a stylish and rugged gray rope strap with genuine Italian vegetable-tanned black leather accents, and a certificate of authenticity.
