Nick Bassett joins Argento as sales manager


Nick Bassett has joined Argento Fine Products as the sales manager for Frederique Constant and Alpina Watches. 

Bassett has extensive experience in retail beginning his career with jeweller the H L Brown Group, before going onto manage Bright & Sons in Scarborough and then joining the Goldsmiths Group in 1989, where he managed various stores over a 13 year period. Bassett then joined Preston & Duckworth in York.

He then left the trade in 2005 and spent six years as an administrator in professional football before moving to a role with the London 2012 Olympics.


In his new role, Bassett will apply his experience to the distribution of Frederique Constant and Alpina, in Scotland and Northern England, playing a role in expansion plans for the brands.

Bassett said: "Having worked with Giuseppe and Claudia at Argento Fine Products as suppliers on previous occasions and enjoyed their loyal support, I am delighted to return to the trade with them for this exciting new challenge.

"As part of an independent, family-owned company, both the Frederique Constant and Alpina brands have a great deal to offer and I am particularly impressed by the quality and finish of these products. They offer great value for money and give the consumer the opportunity to own a timepiece with a manufacture movement for a relatively small outlay. I believe that these brands have a great future in the UK and it’s great to see key retailers already offering their support. I’m looking forward to a long and successful association with Argento Fine Products and these two intriguing brands."
