The Avengers

Samuel Jackson, as Nick Fury, wears Piaget in the film "The Avengers"

As the leader of the world’s most powerful superheroes, Nick Fury—Samuel L. Jackson’s character in the new blockbuster film, “The Avengers”—needed a watch that makes a bold yet sophisticated statement. The Piaget Polo watch was the perfect choice.

Handcrafted in 18k white gold and presented on a black alligator strap, Fury’s watch features Piaget’s in-house 880P flyback chronograph movement. The ultra-thin automatic watch offers a unique dual time function, perfect for Jackson’s character.

Piaget is proud to have dressed the Oscar-nominated actor for his starring role in the film that has had the biggest opening of all time. “The Avengers” took in more than $200 million this past weekend and is set to easily break the billion-dollar mark.

Piaget has had a longstanding love affair with Hollywood and has been recognized for its dedication to cinema and the arts. In addition to appearing on the wrists of the silver screen’s leading men, the company is a principal sponsor of the Independent Spirit Awards.
