RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Sylvester Stallone “blockbuster” watch to conquer the most thoroughly hostile of natural environments.
Developed in collaboration with watch aficionado Sylvester Stallone, the new RM 25-01 Adventure tourbillon chronograph attests a desire on the part of Richard Mille and the artist to conquer the most thoroughly hostile terrains. Sylvester Stallone is a serious watch collector.
With the Richard Mille RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Sylvester Stallone it is possible to swap out the bidirectional bezel for the compass bezel. Made of grade 5 titanium, the compass is equipped with a bayonet mount. Its mirrored cover with a slot at 12 o’clock improves the accuracy of sighting with the compass needle.
“What’s more, you can expect a detachable compass and an emergency compartment which hides some all- important water purification tablets. Handy, especially when you’re lost at sea with nothing but an AK47 and a legion of angry pirates to keep you company,” commented esquire.
“Our ability to create beautiful, technical objects is what sets us apart from animals. As far as I know, no-one has ever seen an animal with a watch strapped to its leg!” added the actor.
“I like watches to be functional, hard-wearing and reliable. I also like a watch that shows your personality and says who you are inside. I choose my watch according to what I’ll be doing that day, but it also has to match my mood. You buy a watch in much the same way you pick a car, a suit, a sculpture or a painting. You fall for it there and then, at that precise moment. When I look at my watches, they take me back to a particular period in my life. A watch doesn’t just tell you the time; it helps bring back certain memories,” Stallone said on his expectations from a watch.
“The collaboration between Richard Mille, founder of the eponymous brand and actor/author/artist Sylvester Stallone began four years ago, in 2014, and culminates in the Richard Mille RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure watch that is being made in a limited edition of just 20 pieces – but, beware, you need to plunk down a cool
$983,000 for one timepiece,” commented forbes.
