Watch Of The Day: Festina Chronograph F6844/3 Sport
Festina’s origins date back to 1902 in Switzerland but its modern history began in 1984 when Miguel Rodriguez acquired the Festina brand to form the Festina-Lotus Group. The Festina brand experienced rapid international growth in the following three decades, thanks to great design and innovative engineering. Products like 1996’s Mecaquartz, a timepiece that uniquely combined combining mechanical and quartz mechanisms, became iconic for the Festina brand.
Today, Festina continues to make high-quality timepieces. No exception to the Festina standard is the Chronograph F6844/3 Sport. This watch was designed to show off its sporty look and performance while maintaining the appearance of a premium timepiece.
With a case and bezel made of polished-silver stainless steel plus mineral crystal, this watch is built to handle just about anything. All of that to protect it’s busy blue dial, designed with features like a weekday and date of month window at 3 o’clock and three active sub-dials.
Festina’s Chronograph F6844/3 Sport is a lot of watch for only $152. That’s great value for a timepiece with this level of mechanical quality from a brand name like Festina.
