Kim Kardashian Just Dropped $379K on Jackie Kennedy’s Old Watch
Just eight months after her Paris robbery, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star dropped six figures on a new pricey timepiece to add to her jewelry collection. According to TMZ, the 36-year-old placed the winning bid at a Christie’s auction for a watch belonging to Former Fist Lady Jackie Kennedy.
Though the accessory — a gold Cartier piece with a simple black leather strap — was estimated to fetch $120,000, Kim’s anonymous bid reportedly clocked in at a whopping $379,500!
According to the engraving on the back, the watch was gifted to Jackie by brother-in-law Prince Stanislaw Radziwill just months before President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The date February 23, 1963 was engraved on the back to commemorate a 50-mile hike the royal took part in on behalf of Jackie’s husband.
Kim was also said to have placed a bid on Jackie’s painting of the hike, but lost out to a higher bidder.
