Sylvester Stallone’s fake watches uk collection is no different from his image on the screen: it is bold and big, and it looks like a blow will knock you down. We all know that Stallone is Rocky and Rambo; an all-around action man who throws a gun. What you may not know is that Stallone is also one of the most influential watch collectors in the past few decades. He has the ability to change the taste of the public and make lesser-known brands stand out. Stallone played an important role in placing Panerai and Richard Mille in the public eye in the 2000s, elevating these two brands to the highest status they enjoy today. In fact, Stallone also attributed Arnold Schwarzenegger to the world of Panerai to himself.
The Panerai Luminor 5218-201/A “Logo” worn by Sylvester Stallone in the 1996 film “Daylight”
“This is the watch that turned it on for me,” Stallone said. “I made a movie called “Daylight”, which will be the hardest movie ever. I want to wear a watch that no one has ever seen.”
When he opened the Panerai box in the dealer’s shop, it almost shone. “This watch is a star,” Stallone said in the video. Stallone finally strapped the watch to his wrist that day and didn’t take it off until the end of the filming. This watch is provided in exactly the same way as seen on the screen, with a shark leather strap. The lot also includes utensils related to the movie and Stallone’s handwritten notes. The watch comes with the original box and two extra Panerai Pre-Vendome buckle straps and original brass screwdriver.
“I wore it in movies and it immediately became popular. After that, Arnold Schwarzenegger started wearing it and I said, ‘oh my god, can I have anything that belongs to me?” Stallone said with a smile. “It has become very popular, and people are beginning to see its extraordinary shape and its functions. My God, this watch is already underwater and in hell, and it is still beautiful. Look at this movie, you just Will understand what I mean. This is a difficult shooting.”
Richard Mille Ref. RM 032-TI Sylvester Stallone dressed in The Expendables 3
For this work, Stallone hopes “The Expendables 3” is different. Stallone was already Richard Mille’s long-term collector. He personally called Richard Miller and asked him to design a watch and asked the question-“What watch will John Rambo wear?”
Richard Mille’s initial reaction was, “For mercenaries, this is a very high-end watch”, but in the end he created it. Stallone wears the RM 032 with a red rubber strap in the movie.
“It’s very obvious and extraordinary that people keep mentioning watches in movies. I think it gets more attention than I get in movies. It’s a star,” Stallone said. “This is very helpful for me and I have gone through hell. All those battle scenes, all those extraordinary stunts. This is what I wear.”
Sylvester Stallone must contact Richard Mille in person to get RM 052-01 because it is very popular and the quantity is small. With the help of Miller, Stallone found the last one.
“I am wearing this thing proudly. I still have a mixed feeling about giving up on it,” Stallone admitted. “But you know, well, I have a lot of fun with it, now it’s time for others to wear it proudly.”
“This watch was designed by Richard Miller based on speed. It is named after a world-class sprinter. I have to say that this watch may be the only watch that looks like it is moving when it is stationary. “Stallone said.
The lines on the dial are inspired by the sprinter Yohan Blake’s own hands and the fingers he stretched out when he was exercising. Stallone recalled that when he walked into a restaurant, he didn’t wear Yohan Blake on his wrist, which disappointed him. Stallone said: “This one has star quality, this one has.”
Richard Mille Ref. RM025-01
The last auction of Sylvester Stallone’s collection was RM 025-01, which was designed by Richard Mille for explorers and actors, inspired by all of Stallone’s action films. Watches are more like gadgets than clocks. They have two lids and a compartment for quinine pills and other functions (such as a compass).
“You must be a true amateur to get lost in the jungle with this watch. If you can’t find a way out, don’t go to the jungle,” Stallone said with a smile. “This is the Rambo of the watch.”
