After the superstar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got engaged earlier in April this year, excitement has been brewing about the wedding gifts and who is getting an invite to the couple’s nuptial ceremony at their French chateau. The Troy star has recently picked up a state of the art Patek Philippe Minute Repeater worth £250,000 ($390,000) as a pre-wedding gift for Angelina after meeting the Stern family, who own Patek Phillippe, at a watch fair in Basel.
Made of gold with a mother of pearl dial, the highly sophisticated watch normally has a waiting period of two years. The Stern family at the firm’s headquarters in Geneva checks each of the watches personally. It is one of finest pieces of clockwork and truly a piece of art. The Patek Philippe Minute Repeater seems to be the perfect wedding gift for Angelina who also splurged while gifting a $1.6 million helicopter to Brad Pitt.
