    On a chronograph roll of late...Tudor 42000

    So I was asking about the 2894-2...here's a new arrival with the 7753.
    Shout out to Mark aka drster - he's an absolute legend.
    Brand new piece. Been eyeing it since it came out coupla years ago...

    so what is it...?

    good presentation box: not too big...just the way I like it



    why not the heritage chrono?
    i think black is way cooler

    the clasp and buckle system is very smooth

    very comfortable rubber strap...smooth but not isofrane smooth..so it shapes nicely on the wrist

    sexy beast: 150m WR, screw down crown



    quite stealthy...gary won't like this..not legible enough..lume is a bit lacking too

    The Fastrider Black Shield measures 42mm wide and its case is made from nearly scratch-proof injected ceramic.
    The
    case is a monobloc, meaning it is made from a single piece and not a series of pieces mounted to a sub-frame, this allows forthe entire case structure to be fashioned in ceramic.
    Tudor says this technical know-how is an extension of the knowledge they developed for the ceramic bezel used on their Pelagos diver.


    that being said...very very well built piece...i have to say the j12 ceramic feels slicker though.

    super well balanced dial

    slightly annoying that the lugs are 24mm...good fun diamond detail at on the seconds timer hand


    wth? a sunburst matt dial???

    quite pretty..still 2 minds about it..will take more pics tomorrow


    *daytime photos added
    good looking piece

    its a daytona-lite at a much lower price point?
    bigger futuristic case, funky hands, killer dial design elements, deadly color combo
    whats not to like (apart from the lume...)




    the clasp uses the ball bearing system...its super smooth

    nice detail on the rubber strap back to keep it sliding about?

    quick change date valve

    side profile a bit boring (spoilt by the GSes)


    the concentric rings on the subdials are killa

    I really like that one. It looks a bit like a Daytona gone wild. The colors are great. Comparing it to the Heritage Chronograph, which I'm wearing today, that one has a lot more character on its own whereas the THC relies on its vintage good looks to get by.

    Excellent choice. I think I like it better then the Heritage. It has that dimension that Heritage line lacks especially love the border rings on the subdials.

    That is awesome! Love it. I normally can't stand date windows at 4:30, but a round one like that with a straight vertical number works nicely. There are some Bell & Ross pieces set up like that which look good, too.

    How's the lume? Where's the lume shot?

    Not as inspiring as in the light, I'll give you that. Still a very very cool piece.
