    FS: Luigi Leicatime & Arte di mano half cases for Leica

    This is a clear instance of obsessive behavior. I'm selling four NEW half cases and one gently used (for one month) half case. Since I sold my M9-P this week, three of the cases were made for the M8, M9, M9-P, M-E, M Monochrom. Two cases are for the M Type 240.

    If you're not familiar with Arte di mano cases made by JnK, they're very finely made cases that fit the object cameras perfectly. Most Leica owners are familiar with the Luigi Leicatime half cases. One of the Luigi cases is special however, in that it is his "Millennium" style and was made special for the M8, M9, M9-P, M-E, M Monochrom. Usually that case is only available for earlier film Leicas (M2,M3,M4,M6,M7,MP).

    The Arte di mano half cases are sold on eBay (and now at the Leica Store Miami). As with the Luigi Leicatime half cases, the cases are hand made to order and take approximately a month to obtain. My five cases are available immediately and will save you about 25% over retail ($390 retail).

    Andrew,

    All the photos now are correct. Refresh your browser window/tab and you will see photos of both sides of each case.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Andrew,

    I misunderstood your question. None of my cases have snap-on rear doors. I don't find that option useful. When I owned a half case with a rear door, I found that the rear door spent most of the time in my pocket.
