I use a Minox meter with all of my Leicas.

It's wonderful. It's tiny, it's very very rugged, and it's photovoltaic
(so it doesn't need a battery). Granted, it doesn't work well in very
dim light, but neither do I. 

The Minox meter is calibrated for films up to ISO 80; I shoot mostly
ISO 100 and 400 films. I just do the adjustment in my head.

I have no idea where to get such meters any more; I bought it 30 years
ago and I treasure it.
