Brad Pitt spends R3.5 million on watch for Angelina Jolie

Bang Showbiz, Times LIVE | 08 August, 2012 12:30
The Patek Philippe Ladies Minute Repeater, which sells for R3.5 million.

Actor Brad Pitt has spent £250 000 (R3.5 million) on one of the world's most expensive watches as a wedding present for fiancée Angelina Jolie.

The Fight Club star reportedly bought a luxurious Patek Philippe Minute Repeater, which normally has a two-year waiting list.

The custom-made timepiece is gold with a mother of pearl dial and takes two months to make.

Each one is checked by a member of the Stern family -- who own Patek Philippe -- at the firm's HQ in Geneva, Switzerland.

"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.

"It chimes sounds based on Big Ben and is constructed by hand. It's believed he'll present it to Ange as a pre-wedding gift."

The company said in a statement: “The Patek Philippe Ladies Minute Repeater has a two year waiting list and is only granted to those who apply for the watch and meet the required criteria to own it.”

Pitt, 48, got engaged in to Jolie, 37, in April and they are expected to marry in a ceremony at their French chateau.

The couple is currently living in Surrey with their six children.
