Here we have a 2014 Zeppelin LZ127 Count Zeppelin Chronograph with a 42.5mm polished and brushed stainless steel case, the stepped lugs have a lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 14.5mm ensuring a comfortable fit on the wrist. Down the right side, we have the chronograph pushers and a signed crown in the centre. A thin polished bezel holds a domed sapphire crystal above a white dial, an outer minute track is precisely printed with large Arabic numeral indices marking the hours. At 3 o’clock a 30-minute register and at 9 o’clock a continuous seconds register, at 6 o’clock a framed date window completes this vintage-inspired bicompax chronograph. Elegant-blued hands are complemented with a tapered chronograph hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Zeppelin motif and at 6 o’clock Chronograph LZ127. On the reverse, a screw-down exhibition case back, inside a manually wound Poljot 3133, 23 jewels, 21,600 beats per hour. This movement is a true workhorse and has been in production in Russia (USSR) since the 1970s. The watch comes fitted on a 22mm leather strap and comes with its Zeppelin presentation box and paperwork.
This is the first Zeppelin we have had in stock and I am very impressed, the build quality for the price is incredible and the design really screams vintage chronograph! If you are in the market for an affordable mechanical chronograph, I'd highly suggest this.
