Here is some shameless "Stallonage." Sly dons a Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec GMT watch during the European premier of the Expendables II movie (in Germany I think). I must admit that I am really looking forward to seeing the film - especially because Arnold will be more prominently featured in it. Hopefully he will get some battle damage to show his metallic Schwarzenegger innards.

Sylvester hasn't had the easiest last few months as his son Sage Stallone died of what I believe was a drug overdose in LA. That's got to be rough as I understand Stallone was a good dad to a kid that couldn't quite standup on his own two feet. It can't be easy living in Rambo Balboa's shadow.

Stallone is well-known for being a serious collector of things from watches to belt buckles. He loves his gadgets and as an icon has helped make a lot of watches popular. Most notable of course was his role in getting Panerai watches popular among his peers in Hollywood. He was also one of the leaders in the "large watch" movement. The Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec GMT watch is 46mm wide and contains a base ETA movement which is modified by CFB. They call it the caliber CFB 1901 automatic chronometer movement. This model can display up to three timezones, has a chronograph, and the date. The design is an acquired taste, but I have to commend Carl F. Bucherer in releasing (what are in my opinion) watches with inherently useful complications. The movement has a lot of cool features, I am not going to discuss them all here, but if you are interested in the piece you should know that.

Stallone's Patravi TravelTec watch is the 18k rose gold version attached to the thick calfskin leather strap. This model even has versions with diamonds on the bezel - but I don't think that is Stallone's style. It also isn't cheap. Price for the Carl F. Bucherer Patravi TravelTec GMT watch in 18k rose gold is a hefty $44,000. I don't even want to know the price on the available full 18k rose gold bracelet. My next question is what timepiece will he be wearing in the Expendables II. Another Panerai? Probably.

No wrist attire can distract me from the total fail that is his brow lift.  I like the guy, I just wish he hadn't succumbed to vanity like his Hollywood friends.  Arnie gets his chin filed down and Stallone tries on the Joker look.  Sad.

I agree..I think 4 of them wore the same Bronzo model.

From the promotional stills it looks like Stallone and his crew are all wearing the Panerai PAM382 Luminor 1950 Submersible "Bronzo".

@Ulysses31 I agree. But beside that I still think the man is a total legend. I love that he just seem to take the fame and all that comes along with it (the good and the bad) in his stride. Not to mention his dedication to his health and fitness (he's in better shape at 60+ yrs old then most of us can ever dream of), and his sense of style. Let's face it, the world will be a worse off place without Rambo, Rocky, and The Expendables. Oh and he's a watch aficionado! Almost forgot. Ha!

@star42 Well, to me Rocky and the Rocky franchise is a massive contribution to the world of film.  The guy writes, directs, choreographs just about everything that he's been involved with.  As I said, I like the guy but I think when you're surrounded by so many vain and self-absorbed people in Hollywood, some of the bad stuff rubs off on you.

@star42  Also a major steroid abuser. Got busted on a promotional visit to Sydney for the first Expendables . The man has become a sad joke . An object lesson in the dangers of vanity and ego .              On second thoughts ,the perfect ambassador for a high end watch company.

Ahh yes, the new non-luxury luxury metal. Who is gonna be the brand which tries to make a full plastic cased watch high-end? Oh wait, that already happened a few times.

Fair call, but if i feel anything for the man it would be pity, not hate.

I am facinated by, and appreciative of, the skill, craftsmanship, andtha engineering involved in the realisation of the modern mechanical watch. What i hate is marketing bull****

@antjay  I think that is being a bit unfair mate. The man is 60 years old. Of course he'll need some help in his workout. The fact that he's still busting his balls to be in the shape that he is right now so he can still make all these awesome action films is a testament to his discipline and dedication. And if you don't remember, he wasn't exactly a sloth when he was younger either. 

Haters will always hate. That's the fact of life. But if you're really going to diss the concept of high end timepieces than I think you're visiting the wrong website mate.
