Solid body camera with an aluminum top and bottom, steel casing, and black crackle paint. The camera uses a 127 roll film that produces 4 x 4cm pictures. It has a Roschlein-Kreuznach-Cymat f/7.7 lens, with apertures of 7.7, 11, and 16mm in rotating plate. It also has a Synchro Cylux shutter with settings of 1/25, 1/50, 1/75, 1/100 of a second, and B. The film compartment is released by a slide lock on the left side of the camera when looking from the back. Other features are a red window in the back cover for frame count, synchronized flash coaxial socket in the lens assembly, a direct vision reverse Galilean optical finder, film advance knob on the top of the camera, large plunger ready shutter release button, and a ¼” 20 thread tripod mount. The camera does have double exposure protection and the film advance knob needs to be turned before the shutter release button can be pushed even though the shutter is cocked manually. The Luxette S was introduced in 1953 by the Zimmermann Company and was manufactured in Nurnberg, Germany (Allemagne (French), Alemania (Spanish), Germania (Italian), Niemcy (Polish), Saksa (Finnish)).
