The VICAM is actually a gold-plated Chadt M2.  As far as we can tell, all of the features are the same.  Only 108 cameras were available -- worldwide. The camera was built in 1990 in Berlin and is handmade. The shutter is fixed at 1/180 sec. The apertures are variable from f4 to f11 with the tiny lever on the front of the camera.  Apparently the gold plating has covered up the f numbers. Comes with a 3 element 14.3 mm (f4) fixed focus lens. Pop-out viewfinder.  24 karat gold. The price in 1990 was 2,750 -- DM.
