He has wealth and possessions beyond his wildest dreams. But that did not stop Angelina Jolie giving Brad Pitt a rare watch said to be worth more than $3 million as a wedding gift.
The saucy Maleficent actress bought her man a much coveted 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer, a legendary design by one of the most respected of all Swiss watchmakers.
Angelina’s romantic gesture became known after she had a friend take it to shop to have it inscribed – ‘To Roly from Nessa.’ The couple play these characters in drama By The Sea, a movie they are currently filming in Malta, and which the actress is also directing.
George Farrugia who runs a jewellery shop on the neighbouring island of Gozo, told The Mirror: ‘I did inscribe the watch, it was for Brad and it was a rare one. ‘Oh yes, it was very valuable.’
The happy couple wed in a lavish ceremony last month, a long awaited wedding as they have been together for nine years since Brad decided to trade in ex-wife Jennifer Aniston for the 39-year-old Tomb Raider favourite.
