Brad Pitt splurges and buys one of the world’s most expensive watches to give as a wedding present for his fiancé Angelina Jolie. (It feels strange to use the word ‘fiancé’ when they already have a busload of kids together.)
Brad forked over £250,000 for the luxurious Patek Philippe Minute Repeater, which equals $308.6K (as of today’s exchange rate, anyway).
There’s normally a two-year wait list for this watch! But, somehow the two-time winner of the prestigious Sexiest Man Alive award, managed to bypass this line; like he probably also gets to do at Disneyland and The Cheesecake Factory. No fair!
Although the $300K+ watch looks pretty boring, it apparently ‘chimes sounds based on Big Ben and is constructed by hand. It’s gold with a mother of pearl dial and takes two months to make.’
A source said, “Brad went all the way to Geneva to pick it up.” (That’s in Switzerland… we Googled it…it’s where the company’s headquarters are.) ”He wanted to buy Ange a unique gift that very few people own which is like a piece of art — and the highly sophisticated watch is just that.”
Yep, she probably won’t have to worry about anyone copying her… at least not a real one anyway. But what are these ‘Big Ben sounds?’ Best lines from European Vacation? Siri: The English Butler version?
Brad (48) and Angelina (37) got engaged in April and are expected to be married in a ceremony at their French chateau. The couple is currently living in Surrey with their six children. (Surrey is a county in the South East of England…thanks Wikipedia.)
