As many of you probably already know, Sylvester Stallone is a huge Officine Panerai fan. He first discovered Officine Panerai in 1995, while looking for a watch that would work for his character in the 1996 movie Daylight. From then on, he has been an avid wearer of Panerai watches. Panerai even created a timepiece to celebrate the famous actor, the 47mm Luminor Chrono 1000M Slytech, issued in 2005 as a limited edition of 500 (shown above in steel).

He eventually wore a Panerai in the remake of Rambo. And now, for his newest movie, The Expendables, he has chosen a blacked-out version of the steel-cased Luminor 1950 Regatta, which he is seen wearing on the movie poster (shown below). Jason Statham (pictured on the right of the movie poster), also wore a Panerai in The Expendables.
