FESTINA watches - always a good choice
FESTINA has a long tradition and is as popular today as it was then. The brand was founded in Switzerland in 1902. This year was also the first time that the motto of the "Festina lente" Manufacture, which means "haste with time", was immortalised on a dial. The success story of the FESTINA brand is closely linked to a man's business sense: Miguel Rodriguez. This man turned the manufactory into a globally operating company that combines several exclusive watch brands under one roof. Miguel Rodriguez´ Life is a story with unpredictable twists and turns and would give the perfect narrative material for a novel. In 1968 he went to Switzerland with hardly any money in his pocket and without mastering the language. After a few years he returned to his home country Spain, where fate took its course. A friend told him that if he had lived for so long in a country known for its watches, he must also have such a watch. In short: Rodriguez drove to Geneva, went to a watch shop, picked out a model and traded the owner down from 150 francs to 80 francs. Back in Barcelona, a banker liked the watch so much that he bought it from Rodriguez for 150 pesetas and asked him to get more of the Swiss watches, because at that time it was difficult to get quartz watches in Barcelona. In the weeks that followed, Rodriguez travelled to Geneva several times and earned more than a year's salary from the banker's love of watches. What was much more important, however, was the insights he gained: he had business sense. More importantly, it is not the appearance that determines the price, but only the quality. So give people the high quality watches they like at a fair price they can and will afford. With the money he opened a shop and the Swiss jeweller from whom he bought the quartz watches became his partner. In just a few years, the watch seller became the owner of the Lotus brand and some time later he also acquired FESTINA, Jaguar and Candino and founded the FESTINA Group. Other brands, Calypso and Perrelet, followed. On THE JEWELLER you will find numerous FESTINA watches for men and women, which impress with their high-quality workmanship, their functionality and their varied designs.
