Platinum, diamond, ruby and blue enamel brooch with a mechanical Movado watch movement
Conceived in 1949 and executed before 1951 by jewelers Alemany & Ertman, New York.
"To history, [the Dalí jewels] will prove that objects of pure beauty, without utility but executed marvelously, were appreciated in a time when the primary emphasis appeared to be upon the utilitarian and the material. [They] were not conceived to rest soullessly in steel vaults. They were created to please the eye..." Dali
