Ducati Motor Holding and Tudor Watch Co. have collaborated to create a men’s timepiece that exudes strength, virility, and supreme reliability.

Dedicated to speed and performance, the Fastrider Black Shield is suited for a man on a mission (think Jason Bourne). Made as a single piece with only high-tech injected ceramic, the solid black, monobloc case is scratchproof and resilient. Promising unsurpassed durability, the middle case and bezel use a complex manufacturing procedure to keep it waterproof at depths of up to 500 feet.

The watch strap is available in rubber, leather with red stitching, or beige Alcantara with black stitching. “The Black Shield personifies strength and masculinity in a very unique carbon timepiece,” says Terry Weiner, CEO and president of Leeds & Son Fine Jewelers. “With its matte black ceramic finish and Ducati dial, this watch has no peers. It truly is a wearable collectible.”

Available at Leeds & Son Fine Jewelers, Palm Desert.
