After opening less than a month ago on Friday May 4th in the
U.S., The Avengers has already achieved impressive levels of
popularity. It is the seventh
highest-grossing film of all time worldwide, the highest-grossing superhero
film, and the highest-grossing Disney-distributed film. In the U.S.
on opening day weekend, it exceeded $80.8 million—the second highest amount to
be grossed on an opening weekend, and the second highest single-day gross
behind Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows Part 2, surpassing both The
Dark Knight and The Hunger Games,
and outstripping Captain ,
Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor
combined. In addition, The Avengers has set a new record for
the opening of a 3D film. America
Throughout The Avengers, the superheroes sport a number of luxury watches. Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, wears a striking Piaget Polo Chronograph. Featuring a flyback chronograph with 60 second, 30 minute, and 24 hour sub-dials, this 18 kt white gold and black leather model is as useful as it is attractive. The date appears at the 12 o’clock position, and its precise, automatic movement with 50-hour power reserve make it the perfect choice for a superhero under pressure. Though this luxury model retails at $17,900, Jomashop.com offers the authentic, brand new Piaget Polo Chronograph for $13,962 with free shipping and a two year warranty. Check it out here.
