Leica L2 watch review

Leica Rumors published their Leica L2 watch review:


  • The quick date change is very useful since you will need a date adjustment every other month.
  • Smooth lugs (many companies make their lugs extra sharp on the edges).
  • The top sapphire crystal is shaped/curved/domed like the front element of a lens.
  • Fitted with sapphire crystals front and back.
  • Excellent leather strap – soft leather on top and velvet-like texture on the inside.
  • The strap has quick-release pins.
  • Very light watch – only 79g (under 3 oz).
  • A power reserve indicator is always helpful.
  • Perfect size and dimensions – for me that is (my favorite watch size is 42mm).
  • The Leica L2 can display two time zones with a single hand.
  • The watch is operating at a high frequency of 28.800 A/h, 4 Hz.
  • Made in Germany.


  • Still cannot register the watch online on Leica’s website (the manual is also not available online yet).
  • I think at this price range, a folding clasp would be more appropriate than a buckle.
  • The day/night (white/black) indicator is too small and hard to see.
