Zepplin is now part of the Point Tec group that includes Junkers. While searching for a Miyota 9100 I found them.

Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin (1838 - 1917)

German pioneer of aeronautics renowned for his huge airships, constructed 1900 the first ever dirigible aero fixed airship ZEPPELIN "LZ 1", 1909 founder of the Company Luftschiffbau Zeppelin GmbH, Friedrichhafen. "The crazy Count from Lake Constance" built up workshops that developed and produced engines, gears transmission machinery, envelopes and cellular gas bodies for the airship sheds construction...
Since the 2007 LZ collection the watchbrand ZEPPELIN celebrates an immense success!


Zeppelin is of the Point Tec group now which includes Junkers. While looking for Miyota 9100 I found them.

„The Hindenburg was a piece of art from thin material and linen, of aluminium and mathematics“ (Michael M. Mooney) The famous Zeppelin LZ 129 Hindenburg, which is a symbol for elegance and cultivated travelling, was the inspiration for this watch series in retro-style. The double domed watchcase with its fine framing, the simplicity and elegance of the dial award the timeless beauty of the “LZ129 Hindenburg” watches.

I have the Junkers version of the one pictured above. Also with the Miyota 9100. I hate to say it but it's one of the most accurate watches I own. Don't see any difference in it and the Zeppelin, except for the dial.

I remember when you first posted that Junkers on WL. Sweet watch. Was very impressed with it. Looks like the hands on most of the Zeppelins have more of a vintage look to them.
