FESTINA SERVICE AND BATTERY LIFE

A Festina watch can give its owner years of happiness. Make sure you are maintaining your Festina watch by sending it to Repairs By Post for a routine Festina service.

When investing in a quality watch, make sure your timepiece is continually accurate.  To receive the maximum potential out of your Festina watch, regular upkeep and servicing is essential.

Our Repairs by Post team recommended that your watch is sent to us every 3-5 years. Each watch brand is different, however, maintenance can vary and will be dependent on how often you wear your watch.

Unlike a high street jeweller, your Festina watch will be handled by a horology team with over 30 years’ experience.

WATCH REPAIR: FESTINA BATTERY REPLACEMENT

If your watch has stalled, it may be time for it to have its battery replaced. If your watch has stopped completely it may be telling you that it needs to be sent away for watch repair.

A stopped watch should be sent for maintenance as soon as possible, as this will reduce the chance of permanent damage and leakage. Leaking often damages the inner workings of a watch, this is why we do not recommend leaving a completely discharged battery in your watch.

Make sure Festina battery replacement is carried out by a professional watch repair service. At Repairs By Post we have been recommended by hundreds of customers and guarantee that your repair will be completed to a high quality standard in a reasonable amount of time.

 

FESTINA WATCH DAMAGE

Make sure that your watch is kept safe when it is exposed to extreme conditions. If you are worried about your timepiece after an incident of violent impact, the Repairs By Post team, recommend that your watch is checked for damage.

It is not only physical impact that could result in damage, a Festina watch can also be sensitive to thermal impact. If your watch is exposed to a sudden change in temperature, for example, a sauna or diving into cold water after exposure to the sun it could damage the movement of your watch.

WATER RESISTANCE FOR FESTINA WATCHES

Water resistance is added as a guide to protect your timepiece. The water resistance of your watch will wear of over time, therefore, you should always be careful when testing its limits.

It is advised that you have the water resistance of your watch checked by a professional watch service. To keep your watch safe in water DO NOT use pushers while you are still emerged in water.

General Guideline for Water Resistance levels:

Water Resistant: Watch will be resist to moisture such as accidental splashing, rain, sweat.

Water Resistant 30M: Will resist moisture and can be submerged, no swimming

Water Resistant 50M: Will resist moisture and can also be worn while swimming in shallow water.

Water Resistant 100M: Watch may be worn during snorkelling, skin-diving, and swimming.

Water Resistant 200M +:  Watch may be worn during standard scuba diving.

Water Resistant 1000M: Watch can be worn during deep sea diving.

FESTINA WATCH STRAPS REPLACEMENT

Festina watch straps can suffer from daily wear and tear. Does your Festina watch strap need replaced? Our repairs team can replace the straps of multiple watch brands including Festina. Keep your Festina watch strap in its best condition, maintaining it by avoiding contact with water and sweat.

FESTINA WATCH CLEANING

If you wear your Festina watch every day, then it will begin to lose its shine to dirt and oils from skin, lotions, and other products. A regular cleaning of your Festina timepiece will keep dirt inside the joints in your watch to a minimum and will prevent any unwanted odours from appearing.
