Sly Stallone is a former Emergency Medical Services chief who was forced out when a colleague died on his watch. Now he’s driving a taxi and wearing a luxury fake Panerai Luminor 5218-201/a, 44 millimeters of glowing green testosterone strapped to the wrist with good old-fashioned leather and a good old-fashioned tang buckle. Meanwhile, a truck filled with toxic waste has exploded in a Manhattan tunnel, killing many and stranding others. Among the stranded are Amy Brennerman, who used to be on Judging Amy, Claire Bloom, who is Philip Roth’s ex-wife, and Viggo Mortensen, who is hot. Sly and the best 1:1 replica Panerai must save them all.
It’s a v. ’90s movie plot. Daylight shared the decade with other disaster movies, like Dante’s Peak, Deep Blue Sea, Speed, and Speed 2. It was a simpler time, a time when an exploding truck, a volcano, or a runaway bus/boat were more dangerous than the earth itself. The UK cheap fake Panerai Luminor 5218-201/a was a watch for these times. It was sturdy and handsome and thick, like its owner. It projected confidence in its ability to crush shit.
Stallone has said that he chose the Swiss made replica Panerai for the film itself – that he bought it in Italy and “strapped it on my wrist the first day of filming and didn’t take it off until the end of filming … This watch is a star.”
Dissenting opinions say that the high quality replica watches were product placement and that far from never taking the watch off, Stallone actually had several of them and rotated them throughout filming. Regardless, Phillips auctioned it off in 2020 for $214,200, accompanied by a letter from Stallone sticking to his story. I will not say who I believe, but I will say I do like this high quality replica Panerai.
