Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin constructed the first dirigible aero fixed airship (1900), while Hugo Junkers was an aviation pioneer that brought commercial aviation to a new level in the 1920’s and 30’s. With innovation forged behind these names, watches that carry the same have a strong reputation to uphold. Zeppelin and Junkers watches wear a rich history born on the banks of the river Isar in a quaint, scenic town known as Ismaning (near Munich). In 1987, founder Wilhelm Birk vowed to "create watches that would stand out thanks to their unique design, excellent price/performance ratio and high product quality…” That vision has become a reality, as the 2015 watches exemplify these features at a very affordable price.
