Continuing with its partnership with motorcycle maker Ducati, Tudor released last week at Baselworld 2015, three new Fastrider Chronographs ref. 42010N matching the colors of the iconic Ducati Scrambler motorcycles. Now available with dials in yellow, olive green and red, the new Tudor Fastrider Chrono is now fitted with a satin brushed finished stainless steel case —instead of a matte black ceramic case as on the Fastrider Black Shield launched in 2013— with matte black ceramic bezel, stainless steel case back and a gorgeous leather strap or rubber strap with folding clasp with flip-lock with Tudor shield. The size of the case remains at 42 mm and the watch is still fitted with screw-down crown and chrono pushers that are black PVD treated. The date still needs to be set via the shield-shaped corrector located on the case band at 9 o'clock —something we aesthetically like on the watch but we find annoying from a functionality standpoint.
Powered by the same calibre as its predecessors, the automatic movement provides a power reserve of 46 hours when fully wound and the watch is water resistant to 150 meters, granted that the pushers are not activated under water.
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and extremely sporty. This is the type of watch you can really see yourself wearing while riding on a Ducati Scrambler along the countryside. Once again, Tudor knocks it out of the park with another stunning timepiece that is priced just right. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a brand that gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Watch should be available at authorized dealers by June of this year.
