A portrait of the Leitz factory. Following a view of Wetzlar and the Leitz factory from Kalsmunt, the film introduces several departments of the company: milling, engraving, lens cutting, and adjusting. The film also shows the assembly of a microscope and a Leica. This Leica eventually allows to date the film: it is a Leica 1, production of which was stopped in 1932, when it was replaced by a camera with exchangeable objective lenses.

Firmenporträt der Leitz-Werke. Nach einem Blick auf die Stadt Wetzlar und die Leitz-Werke vom Kalsmunt aus stellt der Film verschiedene Abteilungen der Firma vor: die Fräserei, die Graviererei, die Linsenschleiferei, die Justierabteilung. Der Film zeigt weiterhin den Zusammenbau eines Mikroskops und einer Leica. Aufgrund dieser Leica lässt sich der Film datieren: Es handelt sich um eine Leica 1, deren Produktion 1932 auslief und die durch eine Kamera mit Wechselobjektiv ersetzt wurde.
