Dalí's soft watch is both draped against and supported by the remains of a tree whose trunks sprout new life and whose roots entwine a stone. Time, according to a Dalinian watch, is timeless and cannot be set, the watch itself has no internal power or motion. It is eternal.
Given this absence of movement, the royal crown which adorns the watch, identifies time's mastery over human beings. His majesty is attended by two reoccurring, fantastical Dalinian symbols: a contemplative angel, and a woman draped in shawls look on.
