Tudor Fastrider Ducati – Click above for high-res images

We come across a seemingly endless array of array of automotive-inspired wristwatches here at Autoblog, but every once in a while we're treated to something a little different. Like this model that's made for motorcycle riders and aficionados.

The result of a partnership between Tudor and Ducati, this chronograph packs a Swiss-made automatic mechanical movement with 46-hour power reserve into a 42-milimeter satin-finish steel case, with chronograph subdials and engraved tachymeter scale for timing split-second lap times. Instead of the usual steel bracelet or rubber or leather strap, the Tudor Fastrider offers a NATO strap, made from nylon webbing, that allows it to be securely fitted on the wrist or over a pair of riding gloves.

Rather than rely on a slathering of logos, the Fastrider Ducati says it all with its color scheme: a red face with off-center black racing stripes, the reverse applied to the strap. But like a Ducati motorbike, it don't come cheap, with prices set around four grand.

      For those of you bashing... Tudor is Actually Made by Rolex. The only difference besides the name is the movement inside. Rolex manufactures their own "in house" movements for the Rolex brand while Tudor movements are bought from ETA or other third party companies. Many if not 90% of all Swiss watches use a ETA Movement like Tag, Movado, Most Omegas and Most Breitling alone with Cartier and a boat load of other brands that price their watches in this league. I would guess there is a High grade (if not COSC grade) valjoux 7753 movement inside this watch. The same movement Tag uses in their $9000 watches and the same movement as a $7000+ Navitimer from Breitling. Rolex makes the case and mostly everything else though. All in all I would say for a "decent watch" this is really not a bad deal given that you can get a discount on the $4k retail. Rolex is not the highest company but the biggest of the Swiss and for great reason, You're basically buying a cheap baby Rolex Daytona here..at $9000 less..

      Autoblog: Thanks for posting this story--I love how cars and bikes are expressed in ways other than just the vehicles themselves, so please continue these types of stories as well. BTW, I love the watch, but $4K is a lot.
