Do not attempt to adjust your volume; that’s the sound of craftsmanship.
As you listen closer, the sound begins to swell with each precision cut of ‘Veau Swift’ calfskin supplied by Hermès. Subtly leading the color way on this extraordinary piece of equipment, the beautiful grain leather is applied not only to the camera body, but the shoulder strap included in the set.
In collaboration with automotive designer Walter de’Silva, the body of this gem is minimally restyled to reveal exclusivity in design with a finish in chrome and lens in anodized silver (absolutely indistinguishable from one another). All protective caps completely manufactured in metal and painstakingly assembled as a memorial to the long-standing friendship between the former president of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas, and Leica.
Only 300 of the Leica M9-P ‘Edition Hérmes’ will ship. For a mere $25,000 a pop you can snag one or an even more limited edition Série Limitée Jean-Louis Dumas model for $50,000.
