Brad Pitt buys Angelina Jolie a $250k watch

Brad Pitt has reportedly splashed out on an expensive watch worth $250,000 for his fiancé Angelina Jolie.

The 'Moneyball' actor has bought a Philippe Minute Repeater - a custom-made gold timepiece that takes Swiss specialists around two months to make.

'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,' an insider said to The Sun.

'Its chimes sound based on Big Ben, and is constructed by hand,' the source continued. 'He went to Geneva to pick it up and it's believed he'll present it to Ange as a pre-wedding gift.'

The pair's children - Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 3-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - are said to be heavily involved in the wedding ceremony on August 11th.
