Kim K recently bought former US First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s Cartier watch for almost $380k.
Read report from TMZ…
Kim Kardashian has a little Jackie Kennedy in her — or at least on her — because we found out she secretly bid on and won one of the legendary First Lady’s super-expensive timepieces. Auction sources tell us Christie’s expected the watch to pull in $120,000 … but Kim’s anonymous, winning bid was $379,500!
Jackie’s Cartier watch must have been acquired when she was First Lady — just months before JFK was assassinated. It’s engraved February 23, 1963. She got it as a gift from brother-in-law Prince Stanislaw “Stas” Radziwill.
It’s interesting … Kim has vowed not to be flashy since she was robbed in Paris last October. The watch doesn’t stray from her plan … it has no diamonds and the design is actually understated. We’re told she plans to wear it. Kim also bid on one of Jackie’s paintings … which shows Stas in ’63 on a 50-mile hike in Palm Beach.
