    Thought it's a Rollei? I remember Rollei compacts were really small like these and they had 2 dials, one on each side of the lens.

    Cheers,

    It certainly is not a Leica M. I do not think it is a Leica CM or Minilux either.

    All Leica M have a winding mechanism at the left hand top which is eithe angles or recessed into a depression.

    Definitely a Rollei 35, maybe the SE version. Should be quite common as over 2 million of these in various versions were produced. Compact with an extremely sharp 40mm Zeiss lens. Note the unusual left hand film advance lever.

    There are a couple at TCW at the moment though I think those are collector editions, costing a lot more than the usual $300-$500 for the regular versions.

    Interesting to know that these German brand cameras were made in Singapore too!

    Should be a Rollei 35 Original, T or S. Perhaps a high resolution crop of the camera in the picture will give more clue.

    Cheers,

    OOPS! Othere have already id-ed it.

    Rollei Singapore's factory was at Chai Chee. After it closed down, VARTA the battry manufacter took over, then DBS and now I think it belongs to or is used as one of Singapore's Posts centres.

    My friend once worked there in the lens production section.

    Try to get the sonnar one or tessar one they are better. The rollei 35 boy they bring back memories. Very sharp lens. If use correctly produce wonderful result.
