In the year 2019, Leica Camera AG designed the special model Leica M10-P “Ghost” in cooperation with Hodinkee, one of the leading platforms for watches. The successful collaboration is now continued with a special edition in two variants of the Leica Q2: the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee and the Q2 “Ghost” Set by Hodinkee.
The timeless design of the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee pays tribute to an iconic diving watch known as “Ghost Bezel” among connoisseurs. Inspired by the legendary classic watch with its very rare grey bezel (ring around the dial), the Leica designers together with Hodinkee have created the elegant, discreet colouring of the Q2 special model.
The stylish grey leather covering made of fine cowhide with a natural texture is provided with a special coating to reliably protect the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee against environmental influences. Top cover and lens are painted in an unobtrusive light grey and the red Leica logo has been deliberately omitted. The special edition comprises a carrying strap round-woven from grey yarn with a stable key ring binding. Technically, the Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee is identical to the Q2 serial model.
As a second variant, Hodinkee presents the Q2 “Ghost” Set by Hodinkee. The edition limited to 150 sets worldwide is adorned with an imprinted Leica lettering on the top cover. In addition, two engravings in the display glass testify to its exclusive character: they show the respective special serial number between 001/150 and 150/150 as well as the set name. The Q2 “Ghost” Set by Hodinkee also comprises a silver thumb rest, a grey carrying strap and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The Leica Q2 “Ghost” by Hodinkee will be available globally at all Leica Stores, the Leica Online Store, and authorized dealers starting on 8 December 2022. The retail price will be €5,950.00 including VAT. The Q2 “Ghost” Set by HODINKEE will be available exclusively on the Hodinkee website starting on 15 November 2022.
