Kim Kardashian West says she was given an energy boost by a watch once owned by American First Lady Jackie Kennedy when she visited President Donald Trump in the White House.

The gold 1962 Cartier Tank was bought at a Christie’s Auction in New York in 2017 for $379,500.

It is engraved on its back with a message reading “Stas to Jackie” from her brother in law Prince Stanislaw “Stas” Radziwill.

In an interview with Vogue, Ms Kardashian West said she bought the watch and wore it to the White House because it gave her “some power”.

 

 

“I bought Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s watch at auction,” she told Vogue for its May issue.

“I wore it when I went to the White House. It gave me some power: Let’s get in there and get this done,” she said, referring to her mission to persuade President Trump to pardon a 63-year-old grandmother who was in prison for a first-time nonviolent drug offence.
