    Zeppelin LZ 129.......NO info available????

    Hi, I'm a noob. I've quietly been lurking around for a while, enjoying the dialogue, and have learned so much in such a very little amount of time. The wealth of knowledge thats available within this forum is amazing. So I guess I will jump right in with my noob question.

    Why can't I find ANY info on this Zeppelin LZ 129 model???
    I've googled and all I can come up with is the "ZEPPELIN LZ129 Hindenburg" which is a totally different watch all together. Whats going on?? How can I find any info??? ANY help, helps.

    I find the look of this watch kind of cool & it immediately made me think of the Tag Heuer Monaco watches which we all know is just awesome. So I've heard a few things here & there about Zeppelin watches, none really bad & none really amazing either. Mostly what I've seen is Zeppelin seems to be an obscure watch that no one has owned, made by Junkers, etc. etc. This one has caught my eye & I'd really like to know a bit about it cause I feel there's a chance I might could make that watch look good.. lol

    Thanks in advanced for ANY help,
    B..

    There's a lot of info available. Just do a search for Zeppelin LZ 129 7788-3.
    Movement is a Quartz Ronda 5050.B, 6 jewels.

    Re: Zeppelin LZ 129.......NO info available????

    Zeppelin model numbers are found with the first 4 digit number stamped/engraved on the watch - LZ129 is just a series

    It refers to the number of the original airship LZ129 Hindenburg that the range is styled from:
    LZ 129 Hindenburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    made by junkers
    Not made by junkers, junkers is just another brand name for the same manufacturer who made your zeppelin
    All the watches (and more info) are all found on the manufacturers website:
    POINTtec - Manufacture of Fine Wristwatches. JUNKERS | ZEPPELIN | MAXIMILIAN

    So the model number of the one you have in the photo is a Zeppelin 7786
    The other 4 numbers (0204) are the production serial number of that particular watch - ie the 204th watch they made of that model.
    (EDIT: If they do a couple of different dial colours for a model, they'll designate them 7786-1, 7786-2 etc etc)

    I really enjoy mine. It has turned into my daily watch. I found a Tommy Bahama watch that has a good looking blue strap so I put it on mine & love it. People at 1st glance mistake it for a Monaco all the time! Here is a pic of it the way I wear it..

    Great strap. I'd ask you where you got it, but for now you need to be the only one with it...
