At Festina Sport F16608 / 5, belonging to the Elegance line, you certainly can not be faulted for a watch whatever. Fashionable? Sports? Elegant? Informal? Modern?
It probably contains within itself all these lifestyles because it fits perfectly and is at ease in any situation rarely found in watches trade so versatile, especially considering the price range at which it is sold.
So we try to understand the reasons for such adaptability, starting with the stainless steel case.
It has a diameter of 44 mm and is perhaps best suited to very large wrists, but his superb workmanship with shiny parts alternating with areas satin almost makes you forget its grandeur, it is particularly taken care of and goes well with the bracelet also made mesh stainless steel polished and satin, really very nice.
The back pressure is engraved with an elegant logo of the House and is able to guarantee water resistance to 50 meters deep, which is more than enough to deal with so much ease a mundane living in Monte Carlo as the pool at Elephant ‘ Aquafan.
The bezel in steel, swivel apparently, it is actually fixed and is very thin, as if to draw attention on the flange that perhaps is the true protagonist Clock Festina Sport F16608 / 5, the scale with different colors between 0 and 20 minutes and between 20 and 60 minutes vaguely reminiscent of diving watches, on which the rule applies the maximum clarity at all costs.
The dial, basically black, it is very rich in information and is home to three additional dials dedicated to the day of the week at 9 o’clock, date at 3 o’clock and 24 at 6 o’clock, perhaps the readability is not optimal, partly because of the hands of hours and minutes oversized further crowding the graphics, but you can not expect everything, and in any case do not forget once again competitive price (€ 116.10) at which it is sold.
To cover and protect the dial mineral glass with anti-scratch treatment, very durable and bright. Rating: 7.
