Festina watches are fitted with a Japanese Miyota Precision Quartz Movement which is one of the most well known in the industry. We also have certain styles that are fitted with Japanese Miyota Automatic Movement.
Festina watches come with a varying degree of waterproof and water resistance levels. If you refer to the item detail specs, you will find the level that corresponds to a style.
Below are the different water-resistant watches that Festina produces:
3 ATM (30 meters/100 feet), please avoid all contact with water, as WATER DAMAGE IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.
5 ATM (50 meters/160 feet), can withstand a brief submersion under water (i.e. hand washing) but should not be taken swimming or bathing.
10ATM (100 meters/330 feet), rating and can be taken swimming at the surface or snorkeling at a shallow depth but cannot be taken SCUBA diving.
Please see the chart below as a quick reference.
Our leather straps are made of genuine cow-hide leather.
The glass we use for our watches is made of hardened mineral crystal.
Festina offers a international limited warranty that covers manufacturer’s defects for 2-years after the original purchase date from an authorized dealer. Basically, if the watch parts or mechanics don’t work properly, and it’s our fault, we will repair or replace your product for free.
However, this does not cover any abuse you might put your watch through on your own. The warranty does not cover water damage, normal wear and tear, batteries, accidental glass damage, scratches, strap damage, or theft. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims and service requests, so please keep your receipt.
If you’ve purchased from our site, the order number will suffice; otherwise you will need to send us a copy of the receipt from an authorized Festina dealer.
We use SONY SR626SW and SR621SW batteries
All of our watch batteries can be found at any electronic store, as well as most watch repair or jewelry shops. Any watch repair shop or Jeweler should be able to assist you with the battery replacement. We don’t suggest replacing the battery, as it requires some special tools and you could damage the watch.
