Why We Love It
In the past 10 years, Tudor has been has been doing a fantastic job with their contemporary offerings. Watches such as the Black Bay, Heritage Chronograph and Pelagos collections have been flying off the shelves for their impressive looks, sporty construction and aggressive price points. But their professional line doesn't tell the whole story of Tudor's rebirth.
This particular watch, a Fastrider Chronograph, was designed in collaboration with Ducati and features a bright and poppy yellow dial with black and silver subsidiary registers, PVD crown, pushers, and tachymeter bezel, and an excellent - very sporting ribbed leather strap with a deployant clasp.
In virtually unworn condition, we simply can not speak highly enough of this watch as a sporty and different alternative to the saturated world of all-steel chronographs that we have become used to.
This watch seems to be somewhat forgotten, and we thing that needs to change.
The Tudor Story
Although it started as Rolex’s gateway brand, the quality of Tudor’s products are by no means inferior to Rolex’s.
Tudors were in many ways Rolexes in all but name, with the same waterproof Oyster cases and similar styling. However, in order to keep costs down, Tudor used off the shelf Swiss movements rather than their own in-house calibres. What resulted were watches that were more affordable than Rolexes to the consumer, but still uniformly tough and reliable.
Hans Wilsdorf created Tudor for the everyman, for miners, construction workers and every sort of tradesman. Rolex was meant for the explorer and the businessman, where Tudor was to be a different creature entirely. For your everyday person Rolex was, and often still is out of reach.
But in creating Tudor, Wilsdorf wanted to offer “a watch that our agents could sell at a more modest price than our Rolex watches, and yet one that would attain the standards of dependability for which Rolex is famous."
Today Tudor has certainly defeated any impression of being the redheaded stepchild of the Rolex family, and their current timepiece collection – as well as their vintage counterparts – are getting the recognition and respect they most rightfully deserve.
