When high-tech ceramic meets the world of TUDOR, the result is, naturally, quite out of the ordinary. Powerful and unique. And so it is with the new TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield, a distillation of strength and virility matched with supreme reliability.

The TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield chronograph was launched in the Philippines on November 11,2014 at the East Wing of the Shangri-La Plaza. Incelebration of the timepiece and its partnership with Ducati, a unique Ducati Diavel Carbon motorbike was also unveiled during the event.

The public is invited to view the display of the TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield watches accompanied by the Ducati Diavel Carbon motorbike at the following dates and venues: Shangri-La East Wing, second floor, November 12-14 and 16; Newport Mall, ground floor, November 20-23 and Greenbelt 5, ground floor, November 27-30; Glorietta 4, Lucerne, ground floor, December 4-7.

Waterproof to a depth of 150 metres (500 feet) and fitted with direct-action pushers and a screwdown crown in PVD-treated steel, the 42 mm case houses a self-winding chronograph movement with a power reserve of approximately 46 hours. The matt finish selected for this monobloc caseshows off to particular advantage the clean curves and taut lines of this chronograph. It also accentuates the watch’s dimensions and the tachymetric scale engraved on the bezel. The strength emanating from the case is highlighted by the red features – including the luminescent material – that punctuate the dial. A red seal placed under the sapphire crystal – evidence of rigorous attention to detail – enhances the presence of this model, a perfect tribute to TUDOR’s colour codes. A unique statement of precision and performance, this chronograph is available with either a rubber strap
or a leather strap with red stitching.

Another colour, another look: the TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield is also offered in a version combining the matt black of the case and dial with a bronze tint on the hands and hour-markers.

This version is available with either a rubber strap or a beige Alcantara® strap with black stitching. Because the new TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield is, fi rst of all, a monobloc case in high-tech black matt ceramic. It is also an extraordinary – totally black – timepiece. Finally, it is a chronograph with a fiery temperament adding its energy to a TUDOR line dedicated to speed and top performance.

So much so that, if it were compared to a dream motorcycle, throbbing with power and feeling, the TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield would undoubtedly be associated with a bike without equal.

In this spirit, and to accompany the launch of the TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield, TUDOR – in collaboration with its partner, Ducati – has customized the one-of-a-kind Diavel Carbon model with a black matt finish and signature red highlighting.

These two mechanical machines, statements of extreme strength and masculinity, call for being presented in a world of untamed power and elements unleashed. A volcanic realm, the high-temperature fusion at the origin of high-tech.

Monolithic and scratch-proof, the TUDOR Fastrider Black Shield’s monobloc case is an archetype in its genre. What makes it so special? The whole case is produced as a single piece using nothing but high-tech injected ceramic, as opposed to ceramic applied as a coating – a unique operation for watches in this segment. In addition to the noble aesthetics of this chronograph, the extremely complex procedure adopted for its manufacture – a result of technological expertise acquired in
perfecting the bezel for the Pelagos line – ensures that both the middle case and bezel are exceptionally
reliable and resistant.
