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.
