The date on the watch is significant since it is during the “intercalary days” of the Baha’i year, also known as the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha, which runs from February 25th to March 1st.

During Ayyam-i-Ha, Baha’is perform acts of charity, give gifts to friends and family, and attend social gatherings.

“Let the days in excess of the months be placed before the month of fasting. We have ordained that these, amid all nights and days, shall be the manifestations of the letter Há, and thus they have not been bounded by the limits of the year and its months. It behoveth the people of Baha, throughout these days, to provide good cheer for themselves, their kindred and, beyond them, the poor and needy, and with joy and exultation to hail and glorify their Lord, to sing His praise and magnify His Name; and when they end—these days of giving that precede the season of restraint—let them enter upon the Fast.”-  Baha’u’llah (Kitab-i-Aqdas)
