First came the hazy family snapshots on Kim Kardashian West’s Twitter account, which some in the media said consciously echoed snapshots of the Kennedy clan during the halcyon Camelot era.
And now Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye West have snapped up a bona fide piece of the iconic first family’s history.
TMZ reports that the couple bid on and bought Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis’ favorite Cartier Tank watch—via an anonymous bid—at Christie’s auction of rare watches in New York last week. The selling price was $379,500.
TMZ further reports that a source told the outlet that Kardashian plans to wear the watch, not just display it.
The gold watch doesn’t exactly feel “Kardashian”—there are zero gemstones on it. But Kardashian West was robbed in a Paris hotel room after posting a social snap showing her basically eating diamonds. So perhaps she’s taking a breather from conspicuous displays of wealth.
