world thanks to the quality and universal watch designs, which surpass passing styles or trends. Festina transmits values shared by all, regardless of culture or
origin. Collective emotions and motivation … such as is attraction. Something attractive is attractive everywhere.
Festina watches can create real passion in any person in the wide range offered to people who seek both modern and qualitative products. This is why
each collection is up to date, dynamic and universal and each watch has the highest standard of quality.
The slogan: “Attraction is a universal feeling.” All Festina communication is aimed at a global and international audience. Every collection has a story built
around it that could happen anywhere in the world because Festina knows no borders: Canada, Brazil, Thailand … any place is ideal to transmit universal
emotions such as love, freedom, passion and, of course, attraction.
Festina, since the beginning, has been closely linked to sports and sporting events such as cycling because the challenge in sport is also universal. Festina
is currently the Official Timekeeper for the Tour de France and other prestigious international cycling events.
The Festina Group was founded more than 25 years ago by entrepreneur Miguel Rodríguez.
The group's central head office is in Barcelona and there are subsidiaries in Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Czech Republic, Poland, United States and Chile.

THE GROUP IN FIGURES
More than 2000 people work in the group worldwide, selling more than 4 million watches a year in over 65 countries.
ALWAYS AT THE FOREFRONT
The Festina Group has always been characterised by its innovative designs and the quality of its products. Indeed, it was the first to launch a lunar phase watch on the Spanish market (1985), as well as the first titanium watch (1995) and aluminium watch (1999).
The group has a high-tech Swiss watch production centre in Herbetswil (Switzerland), another production centre that specialises in gold watches in Cordoba (Spain), and a quality and precision analysis laboratory for manufactured parts. From its beginnings, Festina Group has been committed to supporting sport through its brands.
