About The Collaboration
This collaboration between the founder of the self-titled brand of luxury Swiss watches, Richard Mille and the American actor Sylvester Stallone started in 2014. As you know, Stallone is famous for his adventurous, tough-guy roles. Some of his memorable movies include Rocky, Cobra, The Expendables, the Escape Plan and First Blood.
However, Stallone is not just an actor – he’s an author, an artist and a renowned collector of luxurious and contemporary art items. A display of some of his most magnificent artwork exists at the Nice Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, and so his love for timepieces was hardly a surprise. In fact, Stallone is responsible for a series of snake-and-skull-covered watches and pens in the Montegrappa collection,
Stallone and Mille shared a chat and found that they genuinely valued each other’s sense of humor and authenticity. The process for constructing the watched turned out slow and painstaking. Four years in the making, we have a limited edition watch. The series features only 20 pieces, each valued up to about $1,000,000.
The Precision Watches and Jewelry Review
As stunningly simplistic as it seems, the RM 25-01 is a sophisticated, almost unbelievably tough timepiece. The timepiece is ideal for the wrists of adventure-seekers and risk-takers. Hence, there’s a reason its value is up to a million dollars!
The Watch Case
The larger-than-the-average-cases RM 25-01 watchcase comprises of multi-layered carbon fiber composites called Carbon TPT (Thin Ply Tech). Carbon TPT is a Swiss raw material. This material gives the watch it’s stand-out rugged appearance. Although the round shape is unusual, it’s increasingly popular in the Richard Mille watches.
The two bezels are this watch’s most outstanding feature. Both of these bezels are interchangeable Carbon TPT bezels. One is a duo-directional, day bezel with a timescale. Moreover, the other features grade-five crafted cardinal compass tips.
The Magnetic Compass Bezel
This titanium-based removable bezel is set in a twist-and-push bayonet mount. Moreover, the compass has a pivoted Carbon TPT lid with an anti-magnetic finish. Hence, this feature prevents the compass magnet from affecting the dial movement.
The Manual Compass Bezel
You can replace the magnetic compass with another removable, titanium-based, Carbon TPT lid pivoted bezel. This manual compass bezel comes with a 24-hour dial, a 360 degrees scale. The watch features bayonet-mounted titanium cased ‘spirit’ level grade-five crafted cardinal compass tip. Moreover, you find a mirrored lid and a visually distinctive compass needle at the number twelve.
The Green Capsule and the Titanium Frame
Adjacent to the number four on the dial is a green capsule that performs the function of balancing out the compass movements. This effect occurs when you set the watch in a position other than perfectly horizontal. Adding to the ease of maneuverability is the titanium build. You can mount the detachable compass on the titanium. Hence, you can use it as a navigation map.
The Base Movement
Inspired by the base movement of the Renaud and Papi watch, the RM 25-01 has a 72-hour power reserve. Also, you find a manually wound caliber dial paired with a tourbillion regulator. Moreover, the makes finish it off with a simplistic, rugged aesthetic.
