Sylvester Stallone and Montegrappa present the Chaos Automatic Analogue Watch at Baselworld

Andrea Divirgilio / May 1, 2013

Fans of Sylvester Stallone will be having a handful of memories in this year’s Baselworld event. One of the world’s premier pen makers, Montegrappa has presented the Chaos Automatic Analogue watch at the event. Featuring detailed design of serpents and skulls on a choice of gold and silver casing, this watch has been conceived by Sylvester Stallone, who thought of the signature motif of the series. The journey between the Hollywood action star and Montegrappa had started last year with the limited edition Chaos Pen. Also, at Baselworld 2013, some other icons were paid tribute to via limited edition pens, like the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley and iconic painter, Salvador Dali. From the iconic series introduced last year, the Analogue watch continues the trend that got the Montegrappa Chaos series started.

The Montegrappa analogue watch is a sight to behold in itself. It has a heavily worked casing which features the Chaos series motifs, involving a series of serpents and skulls. With Sylvester Stallone behind the idea, it had to be something truly outstanding as it looks. The casing by itself is large, measuring 54mm long and 43mm across, but most of the space is occupied the motif, which one can pick in forged silver or gold work. The dial is a multi-level gold and black surface, covered with anti-reflective sapphire crystal, where hours, minutes and seconds are revealed by illuminated gold hands. The power of the watch is derived from ETA 2824 movement , which also controls the date function noticed at the 3 ‘o’clock position. All numerals are in Roman font, to revoke a sense of nobility from yester years.

But Montegrappa wasn’t just about this special edition watch when it participated at the Baselworld 2013 event. It bought alive the spirit of many iconic figures of the past, especially King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley, and iconic artist, Salvador Dali. The Elvis pens are bejeweled writing instruments, which have bring out various shades of Elvis career beginning from 1956 to 1977. In fact, the colors chosen for each pen, are according to various eras within the time period. For those still addicted to Elvis, and the pocket deep enough to bear the price, these pens are a true object of desire.
