Sylvester Stallone Watch Collection. What kind of watches does Sylvester Stallone like? Apparently, he is a fan of Panerai and Rolex watches. His Panerai collection includes Panerai Egiziano limited edition, Panerai Luminor Submersible Chrono, and a Panerai Marina military watch. Meanwhile, his Rolex watch collection includes a Day Date and a Submariner. So let us check out the Sylvester Stallone watch collection, shall we?
Panerai Egiziano Limited Edition. It is mentioned on Stallone’s wikipedia page that he fell in love with Panerai the first time he saw it. Here’s a quote attributed to the action star about his Panerai love at first sight: “I immediately felt when I saw the watch that it had star power. Besides, it’s perfect for people who are over 45 years old,’ he added in reference to the ease of reading large-format watches.”
Celebrities Wearing Rolex Datejust Watches. What makes the Rolex Datejust special in the world of Rolex watches? Well, it is special because it is the first wristwatch ever with a date function. Before Rolex designers wisely added the date function to the Datejust, guys back then had to refer to a calendar if they want to check their dates.
The Datejust is also special because the watch given by the Swiss watch company to thank U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower for helping kick the Nazis out of Europe (and thus saving Switzerland and the rest of the world) is actually a Rolex Datejust (and not a Rolex DayDate/President as is widely believed).
