Giuseppe Ferro, the Managing Director of Argento Fine Products Ltd, presented an Alpina Startimer Classic Automatic Chronograph to the cricket player Jonny Bairstow after his team, Yorkshire, played Somerset in Leeds.
Alpina were one of the first leading manufacturers of Swiss Watches and today continue to work to the ideals and innovation which founded the company in 1883, to create professional sport watches to the most exacting horological standards. They work closely with Argento Fine Products Ltd who market and distribute the brand across the UK.
Jonny Bairstow, son of former Yorkshire player David Bairstow, is a wicket keeper and batsman for both Yorkshire and England. Bairstow made his Test match debut in May 2012 playing against the West Indies at Lord’s, and has recently helped Yorkshire claim victory of the County Championship for the first time in ten years.
