The infamous timepiece is just one of five noteworthy pieces from Stallone’s personal collection to go up for auction in December

Phillips auction house has this week announced it will be offering a series of rare watches from Sylvester Stallone’s personal collection during the New York Watches auction, “Racing Pulse” on Saturday, December 12.

Considered to be the most important modern Panerai timepiece ever offered publicly, the highly anticipated “genesis” Panerai Luminor that Stallone wore in Daylight will headline the sale, expecting to fetch anywhere between US$40,000 to US$80,000. 

“Sylvester Stallone has been a household name for decades due to his iconic roles in films that have skyrocketed to the status of cultural phenomena. Most people, however, may not know that, in addition to his world-renowned talents as an actor, writer and director, he is also a long-time watch collectorm,” Paul Boutros, Head of Watches, Americas, said in a press release. “Acquiring pieces with a keen eye, he recognizes the watchmaking excellence of Richard Mille, and is widely recognized for having singlehandedly launched the popularity of Panerai around the world with this very Panerai Luminor watch we are offering.”

“Over several decades, he has assembled a truly remarkable collection by some of the most important watchmakers of our day. It is our honor to work with Mr. Stallone in offering these five watches to our clients who will recognise the importance of these timepieces” added Boutros.
