Tudor and Ducati: Fastrider Chrono

First created in 2011, the Fastrider collection represents a partnership between Tudor and Ducati. In 2013, Tudor launched the Fastrider Black Shield which is a matte black ceramic chronograph that was designed in conjunction with a customized version of the Ducati Diavel. For 2015, Tudor has created the Fasterider Chrono which has the same dimensions, design and movement as the Black Shield, but instead of all black ceramic, the case is crafted of 316L steel with a ceramic bezel. The Fastrider Chrono was designed to coordinate with the look of various Scrambler motorcycles (originally produced in the 1960s) that were recently resurrected by Ducati. Accordingly, there are three dial variations that match the bikes: bright yellow, olive green and red. The Fastrider Chrono case measures 42 mm in diameter, the steel Fastrider Chrono is slightly heavier than the ceramic Black Shield. Apart from the polished and skeletonized, ruthenium treated hour, minute and chronograph second hands – and the facetted, polished applied hour indices – everything on the chronograph has a matte or brushed finish. The dial, is available in matte finished bright yellow (Ducati’s iconic color), olive green or Ducati red. The black flange features black minute graduations and black luminous hour dots. The hour markers are black and have been applied, including a black Tudor logo at 12 o’clock. The Tudor Fastrider Chrono comes with your choice of black leather or black rubber, with a folding clasp and safety catch. The retail price is $4,100.
