Festina is a watch company based in Barcelona, Spain. The company was founded in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland but since a takeover its watches' internal components, known as "movements," have been manufactured by Citizen Watch Company in Japan. Since the F16095/4 watch does not know the month - the date display advances to "31" every time meaning you have to adjust the watch on the first of every month. Setting the date on your Festina F16059/4 ensures you always have the correct day of the month at hand.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Locate the "Crown" dial on the right side of the watch, beside the date display.

  2. 2

    Pinch and lift the crown, it will click once.

  3. 3

    Turn the crown counterclockwise. The date display starts moving.

  4. 4

    Spin the crown until the correct date appears. Numbers 1 to 31 move through the viewing window. Stop when today's date is showing.

  5. 5

    Turn the crown clockwise until the correct day of the week appears. The days of the week cycle through the viewing window while the crown is turning.

  6. 6

    Push the crown back down so it sits against the body of the watch. The date is set. Repeat these instructions at the start of every month -- the Festina F16059/4 counts to 31 each month regardless of the number of days.

Tips and warnings

  • Set the time on your F16059/4 first -- the date ticks over at midnight which is easily confused with midday when the time is not set properly.
