Award-winning actor-writer-artist Sylvester Stallone is no stranger to fine timepieces. The Hollywood legend has a collection of watches that would inspire envy in any connoisseur. When discussing with his friend Richard Mille, founder of the Swiss watch brand of the same name, what his ultimate watch would be, he envisioned a watch worthy of his famous “First Blood” character: John Rambo.
After years of development, Richard Mille unveiled this year the RM 25-01 Tourbillon Adventure Sylvester Stallone. The 20-piece limited edition mechanical watch is ready for the true outdoor enthusiast’s adventures in the wild. Its functions are created with the goal of helping today’s traveler get around safely and survive in the wild—without an electronic impulse. Large yet light-weight thanks to the use of titanium and Carbon TPT© for the case, the RM 25-01 includes a chronograph movement for stopwatch functions; a 24-hour time display; a spirit level; and two interchangeable bezels. One bezel is a compass with both a fixed and rotating bezel; and the second is a bidirectional bezel with a 24-hour scale and indications for the cardinal directions that allow the wearer to always be able to orient themselves in the outdoors. Finally, a hermetic compartment on the edge of the case can hold water purification tablets.
With its technical functions, camouflage natural rubber strap, and imposing presence on the wrist, Richard Mille’s RM 25-01 is locked and loaded for the continued adventures of any John Rambo.
