Fastrider, a sporty collection associated with the world of motorcycling, has been enriched with a self-winding chronograph in high-tech ceramic, a first for Tudor. In addition to being composed of an extremely hard, scratch-proof and durable material, the case is also produced as one piece – an exceptional process for watches in this segment and one that it makes it exceptionally robust. Water-resistant to 150 metres, the Black Shield model expresses its powerful personality in a matt black exterior enhanced with red highlights on the dial, the hands and the ring seal placed beneath the sapphire crystal. Its launch was accompanied by the customization in the same colours of a Diavel Carbon motorbike by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer for which Tudor serves as Timing Partner. Some may prefer to opt for a somewhat more discreet version featuring bronze-tinted hands and hour-markers standing out against the black background.
