Accessory of the Day: The $4 Million Watch (!) Angelina Jolie Gave Brad Pitt

Gift-giving has gotta be tough when you’re fabulously wealthy and famous—wouldn’t you already have most everything you could possibly want? Angelina Jolie proved she’s a woman up for the challenge if the piece she reportedly picked up for Brad Pitt as a wedding gift is any indication. The Mirror is saying a rare 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer timepiece was taken to a small jewelry shop on the island of Gozo, a neighbor of Malta, where the couple is currently filming By the Sea

The real-life lovers are both acting in the flick, and the names of their respective characters were used for the engraving, which read “To Roly from Nessa.”

“I did inscribe the watch. It was for Brad, and it was a rare one,” jeweler George Farrugia told the British paper. “It was very valuable.”

Like…what are we talking?

My detective work turned up a listing at auction house Christie’s for a piece that looks and sounds very similar, and get ready for it: It went for $4 million (it had diamonds on the face and came with a croc band as well as the platinum one). A post by luxury watch resellers Crown & Caliber says the sale was a record-breaker and the diamonds are conflict-free, which sounds SO Angelina.
