Dalí has isolated the central image of his best-known painting and given it the same title.  It is a simple figure: a limp watch draped over the branch of a dead tree. 

Dalinian time is not rigid; it is one with space…fluid. The unexpected softness of the watch also represents the psychological fact that the speed of time, while precise in scientific use, is widely variable in human perception.
