On October 29, 2014, Classic Driver posted Horological Horrors: Watches to be Seen Dead with at Halloween. Chaos, the watch Sly designed for Montegrappa was featured and here’s what they had to say…
The 101-year-old Italian firm of Montegrappa is best known for its pens, but it makes watches, too. Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone is famed for his action hero roles and less well known for his design skills – yet Montegrappa gave him carte blanche to create a limited-edition watch called the ‘Chaos’, to go with the Chaos pen he commissioned for use in the first Expendables movie. Those with a taste for the Gothic will appreciate the skull and entwined snakes that make up the case of the watch, silver versions of which cost around £3,500.
On July 14, 2013, at the Westime store in West Hollywood, Sly introduced the Chaos Montegrappa watch that he designed.
According to Sly…
“Montegrappa is a brand that I have always respected. They are artisans, so it has been a lot of fun working together… For me, the Chaos is a work of art, a special watch that we’re excited to show everyone.”

Sly has signed a deal to act as brand ambassador for Montregrappa pens and provide creative input on the design of 2011 models. You can read more about the deal here.

Although we’ve been posting up news about Sly’s involvement in the development of the Choas pen for Montegrappa for some time now, it became news again this week at:
On November 6, 2011, The Deacon Chronicle ran a piece about Sly’s involvement in the development of the Choas pen for Montegrappa.
That very cool pen is called the “Chaos” and was designed by Sly with inspiration from his movie “The Ependables.” The “Chaos” will be available in a limited edition of 1,000 fountain pens and 912 roller balls. There will also be an additional 100 fountain pens and 100 roller balls in solid 18K gold. An even more expensive edition of 10 fountain pens and 10 roller balls will be in solid 18K gold with precious stones will be available.
