If you think owning a Pablo Picasso painting is cool, owning his personal Michael Z. Berger watch might be even cooler. One lucky buyer was able to score just that in Paris this weekend, which cost a cool $267,000 USD and was sold via luxury auction house Bonhams.

Selling for over 20x its pre-auction estimate, the stainless steel manual Swiss watch dates back to 1960 and features the artist's name spelled out over as hour markers. And to make it even more interesting, it can be seen on the wrist of Picasso in his iconic portraits by Cecil Beaton.
