    This watch fob was made by Robbins Co. of Attleboro MA to commemorate the LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin circling over the Century of Progress World’s Fair in Chicago in October 1933. The airship actually landed for a brief 25-minute visit there then returned to Akron for two days before leaving for Friedrichshafen with an overnight stop in Sevilla, Spain.

    The two pocket watches in the background of photo 1 are the original Zeppelin watch and the Chicago Fair watch. Both have been posted before can can be looked at in more details from these two links below :
