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.

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.
