Leica & HODINKEE Partner On A Timeless ‘Ghost Edition’ Camera

Dec 12, 2019

Category: Tech

The unification of various different areas of industrial design is more prominent than we might think. When speaking on the evolution of visual capture, or the wrist-worn timekeeping devices we adorn on a daily basis, it’s not often that we associate the two — but for HODINKEE’s Ben Clymer, there isn’t a more fitting marriage.

To honor the unlikely pairing, Leica has revealed the M10-P “Ghost Edition,” an exclusive camera body that was contrived to represent Clymer, and HODINKEE’s “decades-long fascination with how timeless objects age and evolve with time.” Early in the HODINKEE founder’s career, he purchased his first timekeeper with a faded “ghost” dial, birthing his love for the style’s versatile cream and grey hue, and to this day, Clymer’s dive watch is a reminder of his path to hard-earned recognition. As such, this one-of-a-kind collaboration seeks to provide a similar nostalgia. The inclusion of a traditional magnesium alloy chassis and rich brass top plate bring a comfortable contrast to the 24-megapixel full-frame camera’s cement-colored leather, while faded accents and a matching grey 35mm Summilux-M lens gift the peripheral a spectral aura. With only 250 sets of the Leica M10-P “Ghost Edition” slated for production, the captivating camera is sure to be a sought-after collector’s piece. Head to HODINKEE’s website to procure one of your own for $14,995.
