From Southern Europe, Spain is the largest country as well as the second largest country in Western Europe and the European Union. Spain has an interesting history and culture that dates back to around 35,000 years ago. Spain is the motherland of the world’s third largest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Whilst in Spain, one cannot miss the Alhambra, Sagrada Familia and Ibiza – all places make Spain a highly visited country, with 82 million tourists admiring the country annually.

Festina

Festina, is a Spanish watch brand that was acquired in 1984 by a businessman with the name of Miguel Rodriguez. The brand was founded in Switzerland in 1902, and hence the Festina Lotus group was formed. The Festina brand was derived from the Latin phrase “Festina Lente” which means “Hurry up slowly” which has very positive connotations in the Spanish culture and history. Festina gained international fame by becoming one of the top watch brands around the world as it operates in over 90 countries on five continents. As the brand itself dictated; “We know that very well: Time is the most valuable thing we try to control every day. Wearing a Festina watch is also following a lifestyle, where energy and activity do not yield over time, nor against the pressure of our lifetime.” Festina sells 5 million watches annually and this has made the company an international benchmark in the watch industry.
