Spoiler Alert! Angelina Jolie Is Getting A Watch As Her Wedding Gift
A Patek Philippe Minute Repeater is rare in the watch world. Basically, a repeater is a watch that sounds on the hour, which is how often Jolie does a child count to make sure she has not misplaced one of her brood. Jolie's Patek will reportedly sound chimes based on Big Ben (of course it will). Like the guy version of the Berkin Bag waiting list, it can take up to two years to get one of these watches. The classically beautiful watch is custom made, 18K rose gold, mother of pearl dial and a leather strap and costs in the neighborhood of $400,000. Every one is checked by a member of the Stern family (owner's of Patek) at their headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
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." I guess Brad and Angelina qualify.
