Post Fastrider is the new Tudor watch inspired by the Ducati Scrambler



Fastrider is the new Tudor watch inspired by the Ducati Scrambler
  • A new world exclusive has been presented at Baselworld: Fastrider strengthens the partnership between Tudor and Ducati, which began in 2011
  • The new Tudor Fastrider is available in the following colours: '62 Yellow and Ducati Red for the Icon version and Wild Green for the Urban Enduro version
  • Inspired by the Ducati Scrambler and its universe, the watch is characterised by a seductive combination of brushed steel and ceramic, and is waterproof up to 150 metres
Tudor, the famous watch brand, enters the Land of Joy, presenting the most recent version of the Tudor Fastrider at Baselworld, the World Watch and Jewellery Fair which took place in Basel (Switzerland) from 19 to 26 March. This new product strengthens - through the Ducati Scrambler brand - the relationship between Tudor and Ducati, which began in 2011.

While creating the Fastrider models, the Style Atelier of Tudor took its inspiration from the Ducati Scrambler world, characterised by creativity and free expression. Three different dials have been designed for the new Tudor Fastrider, to reflect the colours of the various Ducati Scrambler versions: '62 Yellow and Ducati Red for the Icon version and Wild Green for the Urban Enduro version. Stripped back to the essentials, the dials are legible and colourful, bringing versatility and new-found energy to the Fastrider line.

The Ducati Scrambler is characterised by a combination of authentic and sophisticated materials, such as the aluminium of the rear swingarm and engine cover, and the steel of the tear-shaped fuel tank and frame, with new-generation components such as the front and rear LED lighting, the LCD instruments and the USB socket underneath the seat. In the same way, Tudor blends noble materials such as steel with high-tech materials such as rubber.

The new Tudor Fastrider chronograph has a brushed steel case that is waterproof to a depth of 150 metres. The bezel is made of matt black ceramic and the push pieces and crown are also matt black. It holds a self-winding mechanical movement with a power reserve of approximately 46 hours, providing a calendar function with rapid corrector which may be read through an aperture positioned at 4.30.

The application of the motorcycle aesthetic does not end with the middle case of this new Tudor model. One of the two bracelets available with the Fastrider chronograph is an interpretation of typical leather saddles with gadroons, offering an additional sporty effect. The other option is a matt black rubber strap that reinforces the technical language of the watch.

Just as the Ducati Scrambler takes the best of the past and reinterprets it in a modern way, so the Tudor collection was developed according to two main cornerstones, heritage and technology. All of the watches in the collection combine elements of the brand's history with a contemporary touch, present in different proportions in each different model, depending on which of the two elements should be predominant. This is why both Tudor Fastrider and Ducati Scrambler use modern language to express the pure essence of their two individual worlds.
