Introduction Of Tudor Fastrider Series Red And Black Dial Watch

The close cooperation between the famous Swiss watch manufacturer Tudor and racing events has further expanded into the high-speed world of motorcycle racing. Ducati is a well-known Italian motorcycle production company and a backbone of the ‘MotoGP World Championship’. Tudor is the timing partner of Ducati in this sporting event, and the two sides have established an inseparable relationship.
 To commemorate this extensive partnership, TUDOR has introduced a stylishly designed commemorative edition watch, adding another new member to the Fastrider series, which was unveiled at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2011. This new chronograph series adds the short-time chronograph function to fully cater for the needs of high-speed racing.
 One is a well-known Swiss watchmaker, and the other is an engineering representative of “Made in Italy”. The two different brands have a lot in common, so the cooperation between the two is logical. Tudor and Ducati were both born in 1926, as if they foreseen a cooperative relationship. Perhaps this is just a coincidence, but it is no accident that two brands from different fields have similar policies.
 Looking back, in addition to the same year of creation, the two brands are committed to the same fusion of refined and unique sports style and superior performance and original design philosophy. Ducati’s motorcycles are equipped with powerful engines and connected control rail valves, and are assembled in a sturdy frame. This coincides with the ruggedness, reliability and precision of Tudor.
 As early as 1952, the image of a motorcyclist wearing a watch in a brand advertisement showed the watch’s superior performance and sports style.
 The commonality between the two brands is not only a coincidence, but also the necessity of both parties moving towards the same milestone in reality. 1946 was an important one of these: Ducati started producing the first motorcycle engine ‘Cucciolo’, which has gained worldwide fame when it was launched. At the same time, Tudor also formally established the ‘Montres TUDOR SA’ company in Geneva, which opened the prelude to the famous Tudor Oyster series.
 In the decades that followed, both parties focused on developing more innovative product lines. Tudor Oysterdate Chronograph series, now the Heritage Chrono series, and Ducati’s ‘Monster’ motorcycle series, are classics of both brands. These models not only become the symbol of the brand, but also show extraordinary sports style. In 2007, the two sides achieved breakthrough results and became another common point of both: Tudor repositioned the brand to attract attention; Ducati won its first rider and manufacturer in the World Motorcycle Championship. Business project world honor.
 On June 30, 2011, Tudor and Ducati’s Ducati Museum in Bologna announced a partnership between the two parties, demonstrating the common philosophy of two brands established nearly a century ago and supporting each other. Go forward hand in hand.
Extreme precision performance
 Each brand with a deep tradition, in addition to devoting itself to expanding its product range, pays more attention to the technology and style tradition of the main models, laying the cornerstone for the brand’s iconic products.
 This spirit of dedication to excellence is not only seen in Ducati’s ‘Monster’ motorcycle series and today’s ‘Diavel’ motorcycle series; it is also reflected in Tudor’s Fastrider series. The name Fastrider is more reminiscent of the intense racing world.
 The Fastrider collection is a collection of stainless steel chronograph models equipped with a Tudor 7753 self-winding movement with a power reserve of 46 hours and a frosted, waterproof case with a diameter of 42 mm. The watch comes in different strap styles, including leather, stainless steel, and a black textured strap with three racing-style stripes. The textured strap is now one of the characteristics of the Tudor, and the texture of the Fastrider series echoes the dial design.
 There are two black PVD-coated sleeves at the connection between the chronograph button and the case, reminiscent of the engine’s piston; and the watch’s outer ring is engraved with a speedometer scale, showing the sporty atmosphere.
 Tudor is proud to collaborate with the Italian motorcycle team Ducati and launch a commemorative version of the Fastrider series. This watch not only retains the technical characteristics of other models, but also applies Ducati’s red design to the vertical stripes on the surface and strap, which is subtly matched with the black texture and small chronograph dial.
