TUDOR launches a new edition of the Fastrider Black Shield in Myanmar. Fastrider was originally created to mark the partnership between the Swiss watchmaker and Ducati in 2011, becoming the technical and sporty TUDOR line dedicated to the world of performance motorbikes. In 2015, a new Ducati XDiavel motorbike has inspired TUDOR to create a new edition of its all ceramic chronograph, reinforcing the partnership forged between the Swiss watchmaker and Ducati. The Fastrider Black Shield represents a cross-disciplinary approach to design, between the world of sports motorbikes to that of fine horology.
New TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield’s keynote characteristics are sporting elegance, powerful lines and functionality. The white on black contrast guarantees excellent legibility and with its matt black dial punctuated by white hour-markers and numerals, a white luminescent material, a white chronograph seconds hand, white chronograph totalizer and small-seconds hands, this chronograph enables at-aglance readings that are ideal when at the controls of a powerful motorcycle.
Providing unprecedented functionality and aesthetic appeal, the white on black contrast guarantees excellent legibility and ensures seamless versatility from road to board room. Virtually , waterproof to 150 meters and scratchproof, the monolithic high-tech ceramic case exudes technicality, performance and power with its taut lines. Its angular yet sculpted contours echo the streamlined body-work of a superbike. Its mechanical self-winding movement offers a power reserve of approximately 46-hours, while a fast-adjustment calendar function is displayed through an aperture at 4.30. Fitted with a matt black leather strap with white stitching, this new TUDOR Fastrider model is also available with a matt black rubber strap, enhancing the watch’s technical and sporty DNA.
