While we were distracted by the opulence of the Leica MP Unique Gold Camera that went on the block at the Leitz Photographica Auction last year, there was another camera specifically created by Leica Camera AG and Leitz Photographica Auction that was showcased but not available for sale.

Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” Camera

It was the Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” Camera, a camera created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Leitz Photographics Auction. The good news is that this exclusive special edition Leica snapper is now available for purchase.

The Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” Camera comes with a Leica M6 and the Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH, both in a glossy black paint finish. But never mind what it comes with because the M6 is what turns heads and puts a smile on the faces of anyone who appreciates beautiful things.

The Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” Camera oozes with the mid-century modern vibe with a glossy black paint finish, the Leitz logo made of solid gold – specially prepared by a goldsmith in Wetzlar, Germany – exclusive real wood armoring made of walnut veneer, and engravings in gold and red.

This camera will definitely be right at home with a mid-century modern decor, IMHO. Also included with the package are a lens cap, body cap, and lens hood – all in matching glossy black paint finish, along with a custom-made strap made of smooth black leather.

Rounding up the package is the all-important certificate of authenticity and elegant packaging with a golden Leitz logo.

The Leica M6 Set “Leitz Auction” Camera with Noctilux-M 50 f/1.2 ASPH has gone on sale starting August 17, 2023, with a super limited run of just 20 units.
