Kim Kardashian is no stranger when it comes to expensive clothes or jewelry.  Recently, the reality star and beauty mogul attended the Rare Watches and American Icons sale at Christie’s on June 21.  According to TMZ and W magazine, Kardashian allegedly spent $379,500 on a watch that once belonged to American royalty, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

The watch on Christie’s website was listed to be worth around $60,000 to $120,000.  This means Kim Kardashian’s bid had to be about twice that amount.

Jackie’s watch was a gift from her brother-in-law, Prince Stanislaw “Stas” Radizwill.  The watch even has an engraved message from the Prince to Jackie.

In the past nine months since her awful robbery, Kim Kardashian has stayed out of the spotlight, especially when it comes to showing off jewelry.  There are no photos yet of Kardashian with the watch but Kim also bought a painting of the same Prince hiking, “50 Mile Hike.”  The painting has a message from Jackie to her brother-in-law.
