Breaking News Sylvester Stallone’s Panerai Luminor ‘Pre-Vendôme’ 5218-201A Sells For $214,200 At Phillips
Hearing that Sylvester Stallone is selling a film-worn Panerai from his own assortment is the sort of information that livens up your ears. Half a month prior, we revealed that the Panerai Luminor “Pre-Vendôme” 5218-201A worn by Stallone in 1996’s Daylight would be hitting the square as a component of the Phillips New York “Dashing Pulse” sell off. The watch was estimated to sell for somewhere in the range of $40,000 and $80,000 (no little aggregate), however it more than outflanked expectations. At the point when the sledge fell after over four minutes of offering and 18 offers, the watch got $214,200. In any case, even that actually feels like a deal.
“I needed to wear a watch that nobody had at any point seen,” said Stallone regarding the Luminor being referred to. “I tied this on my wrist that day and didn’t take it off until the finish of recording.” Famously nostalgic, Stallone kept the watch in his ownership until he relegated it for this deal, almost 30 years in the wake of shooting. It may sound unusual to consider Panerai a brand nobody had at any point seen, however, at the time, that was a lot of the case. The present outcome shows exactly how far Panerai has come since then.
Many really attribute Stallone’s fondness for Panerai as the reason the brand had the option to make such progress throughout the most recent thirty years. Stallone not just made this watch look great on screen, yet began a Panerai fever all the while – with individual stars like Arnold Schwarzenegger before long getting on the trend. In a way, this watch accomplished for present day Panerai what Paul Newman’s Paul Newman Daytona accomplished for vintage Rolex gathering. In view of this, one could contend that the triumphant bidder of Stallone’s Panerai just brought home the arrangement of the sale.
