The Fastrider is more or less the official timepiece of the popular enthusiast bike brand with a modern design meant to echo the sentiments of both Tudor and Ducati. The two brands do share the fact that their logos are shields. With that said, the Fastrider as well as the Tudor Fastrider Black Shield are not “dual branded” watches that have both the Tudor and Ducati logos on them.
This is a “quiet” collaborative product with really just one subtle nod to Ducati which exists on the side of the case. The center of the left case side has a pusher which is used to correct the date, and it is framed by a triangular shield which happens to be the same shape as the Ducati logo. This easy-to-miss detail is the only discernible nod to the Ducati brand in the design of the Tudor Fastrider Black Shield watch.
Tudor Fastrider Black Shield certainly has a conservative and sober personality, it has some very wonderful lines and angles. Around the dial as part of the black ceramic case is a tachymeter scale which is attractive but seems like a vestige from the past, as well as an element which is far too common on “racing themed” chronograph watches. Other attractive dial details include the framed chronograph subdials, as well as the applied logo and name plaque. Note, as well, that having “Black Shield” on the dial makes this one of the rare timepieces to have the model name actually written on the dial of the watch.
As for me ,I prefer black watches,because it seems elegant and wearable.To be honest,Tudor watches is a good choice.
