Introducing | Tudor Fastrider Chronograph For Ducati

Introducing | Tudor Fastrider Chronograph For Ducati

The folks over at Hodinkee give us a detailed look at a collaboration for the ages. Legendary sport bike manufacturer Ducati announced their first ever partnership with a Swiss watch company. Tudor, the brand behind the Heritage Chronograph from last year’s Basel, is now the “official timing partner” of Ducati.

To celebrate this partnership, the CEO’s of both companies presented a special edition Tudor Fastrider chronograph you see above, complete with Ducati’s trademark black and red colors. The watch is 42mm in diameter, features an automatic chronograph with 46 hour power reserve, and has a cool quick-set date button at 9 o’clock coated in PVD.

Though this Ducati-themed Fastrider will not be a limited edition, it will be made in lower numbers than the standard production Fastrider. The price for the Fastrider will range from 3300CHF to 3500CHF depending on which bracelet option you choose — nylon strap, leather strap or steel bracelet.

The Derringer Cycles, named for the pocket-size old pistol, is a cross between a 1920s board track motorcycle and a bike. The brainchild behind the project is Adrian Van Anz, who said that its a missing link between his old Schwinn and his Ducati. It can be pedaled like a bike or you can ride it like a motorcycle with an astounding 150 mpg. Plus, there’s no need for motorcycle licenses or insurance.

Each Derringer bike is handmade with hand-riveted leather Brooks seats, and can take up to a month to build. There are currently 250 different colors to choose from.
