We know celebrities are flooded with free designer items, but it’s not every day an iconic figure in the fashion world literally hands you a one-of-a-kind vintage Hermès watch.

Unless you’re Lee Hyori.

The singer met with Jane Birkin, the English actress, singer and the inspiration behind the iconic and highly-coveted Hermès Birkin bag, on March 21, ahead of the broadcast of cable channel OnStyle’s Golden 12, a program that sets out to highlight Lee’s social work.

The meeting was particularly meaningful because Birkin, who visited Korea for the first time in eight years for her world tour, gave the Korean pop star a vintage Hermès watch from her personal collection. The leather watch was not only worn by the style icon herself, Birkin explained that it was her first Hermès timepiece.

The cherry on top? The watch has been passed on to Lee for a great cause, as the item will be sold at the pop star’s upcoming charity bazaar.

Lee tweeted photos with Birkin and the watch on March 21, writing “The watch Jane Birkin herself wore. It’s signed with a comment that states it was her first watch. We plan to sell this at the auction. Jackpot, no?”

Lee’s charity bazaar will be held at Cheongdam-dong’s M Cube on March 23, where various personal items donated by the singer’s celebrity friends will be auctioned off.
