Baselworld: Tudor and Tag Heuer’s Accelerated Technology

By Whitewall

May 1, 2013

Our Baselworld coverage continues with accelerated technology from Tudor and Tag Heuer.

Tudor introduces the Fastrider Black Shield at this year’s Baselworld – a high-tech ceramic design that distills strength and masculinity into a supremely reliable piece of technology. The alpha-male can relish in this entirely black timepiece, with the exception of stark red detailing, crafted to resemble the streamlined finish of a motorcycle.

As the name suggests, the Fastrider Black Shield evokes the speed and power associated with riding a bike, while the glowing red of the dial’s detailing draws inspiration from the natural force of the untamed elements. The slick design is a nod to the volcano, where high temperature fusion sits at the root of the high-tech ceramic used to coat the watch.

Both monolithic and scratch proof it is waterproof to up to 150 meters and fitted with chronograph pushers in PVD-treated steel. And with a power reserve of approximately 46 hours, it’s marriage of strength and virility makes the Fastrider Black Shield the ultimate in masculine timepieces.

Tag Heuer celebrates 50 years of the iconic Carrera, the first sports chronograph designed specifically for professional drivers and sports-car enthusiasts, encapsulating the speed, emotion, and glamour of the race driver. Among the various new models honoring the occasion is the CARRERA Calibre 36 timepiece, a sleek masculine design with a monochrome palette that is named for its 36,000 beats per hour frequency. Paired with a dial that resembles the dashboard of a racing car, the new black strap design takes its cue from motor-racing leathers and steering wheel covers that will catch the eye of racecar fanatics the world over.

Never failing to assert themselves as forerunners in horological technology, Tag Heuer has developed an authentic flyback complication. The function allows drivers and pilots to instantly restart and reset without stopping, paying tribute to the rapid pace of automobile racing.
