Sylvester Stallone Watch Collection Up for Auction

Stallone Watch Auction Banner

Sylvester or Sly Stallone hardly needs an introduction – the man is a living legend. 

From roles such as Rocky to owning one of the most coveted timepieces ever created, there is nothing he hasn’t done. 

Unless that something is perhaps owning something with a case diameter of sub 34mm.

The Sylvester Stallone watch collection will be up for auction at Sotheby’s New York this June 5th 2024. It has been valued at approximately Seven Million dollars and just like the man himself, there are a couple of heavyweights which we will be covering in today’s article.

Stallone Watch Collection Auction Pieces:

Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime 6300G-010

Estimate: $2,500,000 – $5,000,000

Let’s not beat around the bush, this is God Tier. Or, if you’re over the age of 50 and don’t know what that means, well, it’s the crème de la crème of Swiss timepieces. 

Where does one even begin with this? Initially, the watch was crafted in 2014 as a means to celebrate Patek’s 175th anniversary. Put simply, it’s one of the most complicated wristwatches ever produced. 

Packed to the brim with 20 different complications and five chiming mechanisms, the 6300G-010 is a white gold masterpiece estimated to chime in around three to five million dollars. 

Casual. According to Sly, “I guess I did something right in my life, and this is my reward to myself”. Sealed, never worn, and “treated like a painting” this is as big as watch collecting gets – without going vintage, of course.

Estimate: $6,000 – $12,000

Right, let’s get all the Panerai’s out of the way – (insert joke about it being a lot of weight to move) – harhar. 

I like Panerai, it suits a man like Sly, especially this PAM00202. Unlike Sly, this watch is build to be light and agile – hence why the construction is titanium, which is not only lighter but also stronger than steel. 

Limited to 1,000 pieces (of which this lot is #0001), the Chrono Slytech blends archetypal Submersible DNA such as the robust rotating dive bezel and legible dial with a blue rubber strap and the aforementioned lightweight construction. It’s an endearing piece – for 47mm, that is.

Estimate: $30,000 – $60,000

From lightweight and (somewhat) subtle to something a bit more in your face. 

How about a 47mm yellow gold piece unique coming in at 47mm made especially for Mr. Stallone as shown by the signed caseback. In the YouTube video, Sly mentions “Well, they decided to make something for Sly – there’s only one of these in the world”. 

He goes on to mention that this solid brick of gold will never go unnoticed – and I do not disagree. Reminds me of the new all-gold Deepsea… Panerai ahead of the curve?

I’m beginning to think Sly has a thing for the Submersible – or is that just me? Regardless, we’ve health with titanium, gold, and now we get to deal with bronze! Hey, my watch changed color! 

As Sly puts it, this watch has seen its fair share of Daylight, and has been thoroughly worn – and the images prove this. 

Worn throughout the shooting of the Expendables 2, the watch comes with a skull-like leather strap and plenty of characteristic patina. 

Of course, this is a limited edition, in fact, it’s number #0000 (sure, that makes sense), and Sly chose to have zero TLC for this piece and wear it like all Panerai’s are intended to be worn.

Estimate: $20,000 – $40,000

The last PAM on the list is the PAM00332, or the 1950 Regatta Classic Yachts Challenge. While this pales in comparison to the other Panerais on the list when it comes to exclusivity, this is a grand timepiece regardless. 

A 44mm PVD-coated case mounted on a lovely brown leather strap creates a rather understated look. 

Combined with the split-seconds chronograph mechanism within and you have somewhat of a sleeper here, if you ask me. 

Now, this is simply a limited production piece and not made for Sly personally, but one that he loves dearly and is filled with plenty of lovely wear and tear.

Cartier Pasha Seatimer W301970M

Estimate: $15,000 – $30,000

How about something a bit more petite (looks at photos of this Cartier)… uhm, how about something more French? 

Cartier is known for the Tank, the Santos, the jewellery, and the red carpet. What Cartier is not known for is divers. Bulky watches. 

Sturdy, rough-and-tumble timepieces. Alas, when Sly comes knocking, you oblige. 

The Seatimer is, amongst other things, part of the Pasha range. 42mm in diameter, 100m water resistant, and constructed in gold and ceramic – why does this sound more like an Omega diver? 

Regardless, this timepiece was offered to Sly by the president of Cartier at the Deauville Film Festival – and it’s befitting of Sly when he switches the gloves and guns for a Gucci suit.

Rolex Day-Date 228235 (Olive)

Estimate: $25,000 – $50,000

Well, we were bound to see the Crown in here somewhere, am I right? Well, here we are, and I am pleasantly surprised. 

Firstly, I might be getting one myself soon, and secondly, it’s NOT a Deepsea. 

It’s a pretty simple rose gold 40mm Day-Date offered with the lovely olive green dial. 

This configuration has become rather popular in the last couple of months, and while some might see it as a cop-out when it comes to offerings from the Crown – it just works.

Piaget Polo Grande P10623

Estimate: $6,000 – $12,000

If you watched the recent Tulsa King series you might have noticed that Sly was wearing a full gold Piaget Polo, a watch released to take on the giants from AP and Patek. 

Now, this watch isn’t that watch. No, this offering sports a white dial which is slightly less gangster but still creates a contrasting look nonetheless. 

Big, bold, and gold numerals decorate the dial at 12, 3, and 9, whereas a date window at 6 o’clock creates perfect symmetry. 

Might be the smallest piece on the day, but surely makes a statement nonetheless.

Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711

Estimate: $50,000 – $100,000

Sly owns a hype piece, someone tell the media! Wait, that’s me? Jokes aside, the Nautilus has become a pretty big hype piece in the world we live in today. 

Every A-lister celeb has one (or several), so, why wouldn’t Rocky have one as well? Measuring in at 40.5mm, it surely isn’t as large as some of his other pieces, but beside maybe one or two would draw the most amount of attention. 

According to Sly, “It’s probably the most iconic watch Patek ever made in the sporting genre. 

You know, sometimes you just do it right? You nail it perfectly. And go, ‘Oh, what can I do to make it better?’ And the answer is nothing. You did. So just enjoy.”

He’s not wrong. Sure, he’s been spotted wearing the 5740/1G and 5980/1AR as well, however, the 5711 remains classic.

Estimate: $200,000 -$400,000

Let’s end things off with some diamonds, shall we? I never thought Sly would be caught dead wearing diamonds, but then again, I never thought a watch could cost one million dollars. 

What’s more, this particular Nautilus features baguette cut diamonds set on the bezel for that extra sparkle. 

“For those fact-hungry people, this is the first time they used diamonds on steel. So it makes quite a statement. This is the mack daddy. If you’re a serious watch collector and you want to make a statement… This one doesn’t whisper – it screams.”. And boy, is he right. 

While for some the Nautilus is already slightly overrated, this one is sure to piss off some purists even more – and what’s more fun than pissing off purists?

Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Tourbillon 50th Anniversary 26730OR.OO.1320OR.01

Estimate: $100,000 – $200,000

To appease said purists, we end off with a Royal Oak. However, this isn’t your regular Royal Oak. This 50th Anniversary model was released in 2022 and features a full rose gold case and bracelet along with a deep blue dial. Oh, and a Tourbillon. Sly doesn’t seem to have worn this piece all that regularly due to the lack of bangs and bruises, and who can blame him – it’s a Swiss Masterpiece.
