Zeppelin draws the inspiration for their beautifully crafted watches from Ferdinand Graf Von Zeppelin. A pioneer of early aeronautics, Ferdinand Graf Von Zeppelin built up workshops that developed and manufactured engines, gear transmissions, and cellular gas bodies for airships. Zeppelin's brilliants designs and innovative techniques lead to some of the greatest inventions in aviation history. From 1900 to 1938, Ferdinand Zeppelin made about 100 airships. The LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin and the LZ 129 Hindenburg were two of the greatest milestones in aviation history, and still serve as a symbol of innovation and human achievement. Each Zeppelin watch exudes the same elegance, innovation, and quality craftsmanship that Ferdinand's airships did. Historically inspired and artfully crafted; Zeppelin watches are a breath-taking reminder of what humans can create and achieve.
