Repair is a profession...

It's also a passion


The purpose of this short article is to show that...

Leica M3

This machine deserves to tell its story. It was found in a rubbish dump...

As the photos show, its condition was desperate.

Badly deteriorated, rusty, the curtains pierced, the rangefinder completely out of order and already partially dismantled, it was missing parts.

Its complete restoration required months of searching for parts, in particular a rangefinder.

It was completely dismantled, stripped, deoxidised, the curtains renewed and many parts changed.

Little by little, and with many hours of work, this M3 has regained its functional mechanics.
