Festina's watchmakers have some big words in their manifesto. Words like style, elegance and functionality. And that philosophy has paid off. Since it was founded in Switzerland in 1902, the company has gone through one transition after another, from its expansion into France in 1993, then Italy in 1994, the United States in 1996. Since then, the sporty brand with the high quality range of timepieces that shine with craftsmanship and watchmaking know-how, has never looked back. Vastly affordable, but with a value/price ratio that speaks volumes about the integrity of the brand, Festina watches are a good buy, at any price.
