Montegrappa created the Chaos pen for Sylvester Stallone, who is on the board of Montegrappa. The flamboyant were handmade in northern Italy by Montegrappa's skilled craftsmen.

Montegrappa CEO Giuseppe Aquila said of the piece: ''Without a doubt, the Montegrappa Chaos watch is a one of a kind piece with an attitude and a style all its own, much like its designer. Montegrappa is pleased to continue collaborating with Mr Stallone as our brand ambassador. With a popular line of pens, cufflinks, and even a crystal inkwell, it was only natural that we introduce an exclusive timepiece as part of the Chaos line. The newly-released video experience allows the viewer to appreciate the artistry of Chaos, guided by Mr Stallone’s own voice.''
