The Tudor Fastrider Black Shield is, unlike many other popular Tudor models, a watch that belongs squarely in the present. Even in these times when vintage watches are extremely popular, it’s crucial for brands like Tudor to also maintain a solid lineup of contemporary models. That’s not only because not all watch collectors are into vintage styling, but also because the company must continue to innovate, both horologically, like with their new movements, but also stylistically. The Black Shield may not do anything particularly radical, design-wise, but it does set itself apart from other Tudor chronographs, like the Chrono Blue and the regular Fastrider. The most remarkable aspect of a Black Shield, however, is clearly its case. All feature a ceramic monobloc middle case and all in this nice matte black finish. Ceramic is a wonderful material for watch cases, particularly if you like black watches, because not only is it extremely scratch resistant, the black colouration will never come off.

 

Geoff's comment: With the obvious parallels to Rolex (and with no real surprise given that Tudor is the sister company to Rolex) I like to think of the stunning Tudor Fastrider Black Shield as a Daytona for a fraction of the price.  The ceramic case, Daytona-like subdials and overall red detailing make this a really stunning timepiece.  This new/unworn watch can be yours for less than the retail price.
