Eight years ago, Leica opened its first store in Southeast Asia at the iconic Raffles Hotel Arcade, and today, the Leica Store Raffles has re-opened and is the first store to return to the newly refurbished Raffles Hotel.

Here are some highlights to the new experimental concept store:

Drawing inspiration from creativity and precision, Leica makes its first foray into the watchmaking industry with its first line of wristwatches for the first time in Southeast Asia, L1, L2 and a special edition Leica M in collaboration with Royal Selangor crafted with the finest pewter and silver, as well as the stylish, lightweight and compact Leica D-Lux 7.
