Have you ever wanted to own your own Leica factory authorized service business? If so, you’re in for the chance of a lifetime.
For only $138,000, this complete set of tools, manuals and spare parts can be all yours.
If you’re wondering how all of this came to be, eBay seller globimage says the equipment came from a now-retired factory authorized Leica service agent.
Specifically, the seller says the equipment, much of which is no longer produced by Leica, came from European Camera Service, Australia’s only authorized Leica service center throughout the 1990s. It was founded by Leica technician Jorg Heumuller, who left for Australia after Leica’s camera division split from Wild-Leitz Group.
At the time of inception, all of the equipment for sale cost roughly $500,000, when adjusted for inflation. So, technically, you’re getting it for a steal at $138,000, especially considering much of it is considered collectors material.
Below are a few images are what’s included in the sale, although the seller notes that not everything can be shown. For that, they ask that you set aside a plane ride to come see all of the gear in person. After all, if you’re going to drop $138,000 on a whim, you might as well take a $1,000 plane ride to go check out what you’re getting.
Head on over to the eBay product page and dive into the details if you’re interested.
