How much does a Tudor Fastrider Chrono cost?

A Tudor Fastrider Chrono usually costs from $2,899 USD to $5,050 USD. All of the 42mm automatic chronograph watches under this collection are equipped with a small date window between the 4 and 5 o’clock markers. They are also modified with three sub-dials: small seconds, 30-minute counter, and 12-hour counter. These are found respectively on the 9, 3, and 6 o’clock markers. The dial is protected by a stainless-steel case and sapphire crystal, with a tachymeter scale on the ceramic bezel of each model. With such a huge price range and functional modifications, you’ll have a variety of great timepieces to choose from.

The collection offers timepieces with vibrant dial colors inspired from Ducati’s Scrambler motorbikes. For instance, the Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42010N-0002 features a brilliant yellow dial inspired by the 1962 Scrambler. Meanwhile, the Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42010N-0009 sports a vivid red dial. 

There is also the Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42010N-0004, which highlights the rustic factor due to its olive green dial. All the models are available in rubber and leather straps, and boast an impressive 150m water resistance. Powered by the in-house caliber ETA-ValjouxTudor Caliber 7753, the model  offers a 46-hour power reserve. These flashy timepieces retail approximately from $2,899 USD to $3,089 USD.

Aside from watches with lively colors, the Tudor’s collection also has Black Shield — a series of timepieces with dark and sleek appearances. While they may look similar to Tudor Black Bay Black series with their black-on-black bezel and dial, these watches are actually inspired by the powerful Ducati Diavel. The models sport a black dial which is protected by a matte black ceramic case and bezel. Additionally, these Tudor watches boast an impressive 46-hour power reserve, 150m water resistance, and Swiss ETA Valjoux Caliber 7753. An example model from this series is the $4,499 USD Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42000CN. Aside from the dial, case, and bezel, it also has a black calfskin leather strap. This gives the luxury watch a polished and smooth appearance. 

There’s also the Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42000CR-BKRS, which has a strong resemblance to the collection’s very first models in 2011. Just like the original watches, this timepiece is designed with a striking black and red color combination. Equipped with a durable ceramic case which covers the black dial and a rubber strap, a brand new piece retails at $5,050 USD. 

Colorful versions of the Black Shield were also released eventually. As a result, fans of the collection were introduced to a bigger and more vibrant variety. An instance from this colorful variety is the Tudor Fastrider Chrono Ref. 42000CN-BRLS, which costs lower at $3,729 USD. Unlike the previous Black Shield models, this watch has a brown calfskin leather strap instead of black. This gives the timepiece its rustic appearance which contrasts with the pitch-black look of the former models. 

Tudor Fastrider Chrono's History and Design Details

The Tudor Fastrider Chrono was released in 2011 as the result of the Swiss brand’s joint effort with Ducati to create sporty and dashing watches that could be worn anywhere. The first timepiece under the collection was a limited-edition 42mm watch with a black and red color combination. This model, inspired from the Ducati Scrambler, is also modified with a 46-hour power reserve as well as a quickset date function. Because of its striking looks, it eventually became an iconic timepiece in the world of watchmaking. Eventually, watches with other vibrant colors such as red, yellow, and olive were released.

Four years after the Fastrider Chrono’s successful release, Tudor started to manufacture a special series known as “Tudor Fastrider Black Shield”. For this series, Tudor opted for a matte black ceramic case, bezel, and dial as an ode to the Ducati Diavel, its main inspiration. As a result, the Black Shield series became the first all ceramic watch lineup. The heavy use of black ceramic gave the models their sleek look which contrasted with the Fastrider Chrono’s more vibrant designs. The use of ceramics also ensures an enduring black coloration due to the material’s extreme scratch resistance. But eventually, Tudor released more colorful versions of this series to reach out to a broader fan base.
