Festina is a Spanish watch brand, originally from Switzerland. It was founded in 1902 in La Chaux-de-Fonds. In 1984, the industrialist Miguel Rodriguez from Cádiz, Spanish president of the Lotus brand, acquired the firm, forming FESTINA LOTUS S.A. Although since then, the watches are no longer Swiss, the group owns the firms Candino and the luxury watch firm Perrelet, which are Swiss-made. Its production sites in Spain are located in Barcelona and Toledo.
