Expendables actors spotted wearing Panerai watch

First published: 17-08-2010

A Panerai Luminor watch may have become the unofficial watch of the new movie The Expendables after several actors were spotted wearing them in a promotional poster.

The Panerai Luminor 1950 Regatta Rattrapante is the actual make in question and was worn in the picture by Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Terry Crews, Hodinkee has reported.

As addressed by the 'Regatta' in the name, the timepiece was originally designed for yachting fans and was actually designed to coincide with the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge.

Featuring a black dial situated inside a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) case, the watch sprinkles a line of colour to its design with some fine blue marking across the face, as well as luminous hour markers. The colour scheme is rounded off with white for the markers and text.

Only 500 of the special edition watch were made available when the timepiece was released last year.

Those associated with The Expendables film seem to have a spot in their hearts for the watch industry after it was recently revealed that watchmaker Police is releasing a box set featuring a collector's edition timepiece to coincide with the movie's release, Professional Jeweller has reported.
