Airships and automobiles.
Thinking about the development of transportation and luxurious travel.
1900 - The first rigid airship Zeppelin "LZ1" is created.
1900 - Mercedes 35PS, the first Mercedes brand model, debuts.
Mercedes-Benz and Zeppelin both launched initial models that provided luxurious trips in Germany in the same year. We felt an affinity between the two brands because of their history of greatly developing the means of transportation for mankind, and launched a project on the theme of luxurious travel. We believe that this project will arouse the adventurous spirit of many people and contribute to enriching the lives of many.

The Zeppelin is a rigid airship developed by Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin in Germany in 1900.
The successful development of the Zeppelin enabled high-speed flight and larger airships, and marked the beginning of an era in which airships were used as a means of air transport. It was the "LZ127" and "LZ129" that made the Zeppelin famous worldwide.
The LZ127 is an airship that made its maiden flight on September 18, 1928 and was the largest rigid airship at the time. It is also known as Graf Zeppelin. Graf means "Count" in German and is a reference to Count Zeppelin, who developed the airship. In 1929, Zeppelins became known around the world after it successfully completed a round-the-world trip from Lakehurst, New Jersey. It even stopped by Kasumigaura in Japan during its journey.
The LZ129 was used in regular passenge flight operations for 14 months beginning in 1936. It was a massive rigid airship and is the largest flying machine ever built.
It was equipped with lounges and dining rooms, which is why it is often referred to as the most luxurious aircraft ever. The Hindenburg was named after Paul von Hindenburg, who was the President of Germany from 1925 to 1934.
The ZEPPELIN watch is a German watch with an airship motif made with a focus on quality.
This "Made in Germany" watch brand combines the classic design of Germany's renowned airship, the Zeppelin, with the "quality first" philosophy of German watches. The brand is sold in 35 countries around the world, including the United States and those in Europe.
