Question about Festina F16273/6 Road Warrior Watch for Men

1 Answer

I am trying to remove a link from the watch strap of a Festina F16273 but am unable to remove pins - or identify how to do so...! I am, however, able to remove the bracelet from the watch itself by unscrewing the large protruding lugs between the first half link and the next full link on either side of the watch-end of the bracelet (as opposed to the clasp end) by using a 2mm Allen key. Although this same Allen Key appears to fit into the pin shafts of each link, unfortunately, it doesn't seem to subsequently loosen the nuts enough to enable removal of individual links. Do I require a special tool to accomplish this task, or am I merely missing something? Many thanks, =A=

If i remember correctly, on this watch you need 2 keys to unscrew the bolts from the strap, a single one will just make it rotate freely.

What size battery goes in a festina watch

It would depend on the movement inside. Many times the "cell" is identified on the case back. If you have a model name & # it will help.

I cant seem to find a good pic of this watch anywhere!
Is it one where the leather band goes behind the watch?? You will have to remove the pins (at least one) to get to the back.
I would take to a local jeweler if its more difficult then that.

Large second hand not running, Stop Watch function?

Hey, it sounds like your watch is just fine! A nice watch to inherit.
The small second hand on the sub-dial is your normal second hand.
The large second hand is the second timer for your chronograph feature.
It should only move when you hit the side buttons. One of them (usually the top plunger/ button) will start the Chrono timer and then hitting it again will stop it. The bottom button should reset the hand to the 12 o'clock/ zero marker.
If the large hand is not functioning at all then there may be something wrong with the watch; perhaps the buttons are not making full contact within the watch or the hand may be stuck and need repair.
Hope this answers your questions. Post more questions if need be.
Congrats on your new watch.

Is there any way to adjust the band without a special tool?

Use a sturdy pin or thumbtack to push out the pin from the little hole on the link.
Make sure to examine the watch and which links have pins. Some watches are designed to have a row of removable links with pins.
Remove one end of the band from the actual watch itself. Then remove links as you see necessary.
You may need to use something a little stout like a butterknife to tap the pins out from the links.
The pin on the watch itself has spring loaded tips, push them in and it should release the watch from the band.
