At Christie's Auction on the 21st June 2017, Kim Kardashian won a Cartier Tank previously owned by first lady, and wife of JFK for a record breaking amount a Cartier Tank has ever been sold for.

Who would have thought that a Cartier Tank would sell for a whopping $379,500 usd. It really makes us question if there is really a bubble in vintage watches.
Here at Wabistraps, we are ecstatic to see celebrities buy vintage watches because of the exposure it provides to the vintage watches that we love oh so much.
Congrats Kim K on your new acquisition!
(Please take good care of the watch, it is at least 50 years old and historically important, and make sure you keep it safe, unlike this guy's vintage Heuer)
