The Festina watch company, the official timekeeper of the Tour de France, was founded in Switzerland in 1902. Now headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, Festina watches are no longer Swiss made; instead, their watches are manufactured using Japanese watch movements made by the Citizen Watch Co. If you didn't purchase your Festina watch from the manufacturer directly, you may find that your watch came with warranty papers but no setting instructions. Fortunately, setting your Festina watch is simple and takes just a few minutes.
Locate the crown on the middle right side of your Festina watch. Pull the crown out to the second position to set the time on the wristwatch.
Rotate your Festina watch crown clockwise until the correct time is displayed on the face of the watch.
Push the watch crown all the way back in to complete the time-setting process.
Pull your Festina watch crown out to the first position to set the date.
Rotate the crown counterclockwise until the correct date is displayed.
Push the crown of your Festina watch back to the starting position to save the date.
