Sylvester Stallone, a name that is synonymous with adrenaline-pumping action and Richard Mille, the watchmaker that defies all norms of conventional horology and creates masterpieces that can withstand unimaginable force! The new RM25-01 Sylvester Stallone, created in collaboration with the actor himself is no exception!
Known universally for his roles as Rocky and Rambo, Sylvester Stallone is also a passionate and talented artist with a fascination for all things mechanical. A meeting of minds between him and Richard Mille to create the RM25-01, then, is hardly surprising.
The RM25-01 is inspired by Sylvester Stallone’s own paintings and sculptures and is fueled by an undying love for adventure. Measuring almost 51mm in diameter, the round case of the RM25-01 Sylvester Stallone is crafted from grade 5 titanium and Carbon TPT which makes it extremely resilient and sturdy.
Amongst the many unique features of the RM25-01 Sylvester Stallone are the two detachable bezels, one that acts as a compass and another which is bi-directional and displays the North, South, East and West as well, making this watch every explorer’s ideal companion. Once the compass bezel is detached from the watch, it can be attached to a Carbon TPT plate and used independently. Sylvester Stallone, an avid adventure enthusiast insisted on the compass function for the RM25-01. There is even a compartment at the 2 o’clock mark which can hold water purification tablets!
The in-house caliber 25-01 movement boasts both a tourbillon and a chronograph, making the RM25-01 Sylvester Stallone as technically complex as it is impossible to ignore! Despite its undeniably imposing size, Richard Mille has once again mastered the art of ergonomics and ensures that the RM25-01 sits comfortably on almost any wrist.
In what we believe to be a subtle homage to Sylvester Stallone’s award-winning performance as Rambo, a tormented Vietnam War veteran, as well as in keeping with the spirit of adventure associated both with the actor himself and the RM25-01, the watch features a rubber strap with a camouflage effect, fastened with a sturdy titanium buckle.
Limited to just 20 exclusive pieces, the RM25-01 Sylvester Stallone is a timepiece that truly does justice to the legacy of the man for whom it is named!
HOT Verdict: Strong, sturdy and ready for anything, this watch packs one hell of a punch!
