Fun fact: During his career, Dalí made a series of strange watches. One of them was up for auction in Sotheby’s May 17 Impressionist and Modern sale in New York. This little brooch/watch, aptly called The Eye of Time, is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
It is one of the many cool mid-century timepieces that can be found from time to time. One of the coolest things about watches is that they can be found in many different forms with many different functions. This edition of The Eye of Time was auctioned at May 17 at Impressionist and Modern Art Day Sale at Sotheby’s New York. It was sold for 372,500 USD.
