Jackie Kennedy’s beloved Cartier watch now reportedly belongs Kim Kardashian West. Last night, the classic timepiece was auctioned at Christie’s Rare Watches and American Icons sale, expected to sell anywhere from $60,000—$120,000 (USD). West won the piece with a winning bid of $379,500 (USD), TMZ reports. She participated anonymously, but sources from the auction house told TMZ and Entertainment Tonight that West was indeed the unnamed bidder.

The 18-karat wristwatch features a square silhouette, black band and roman numerals. Most notably, it’s engraved with the date February 23, 1963, which was months before JFK’s assassination.

The watch was originally a gift from John F. Kennedy’s brother-in-law Prince Stanislas Radziwill to the former First Lady. He engraved the back with a note: “Stas to Jackie 23 feb. 63 2:05 AM to 9:35 PM.” In return, she gave him a painting she made of him hiking with his friend Chuck Spalding, which was also sold at the auction.
