The terminology, “the crown of a watch” usually indicates a mechanical device which allows us to set the hands and wind the time peace. Time, however, according to  Dalinian watch, is changeless and cannot be set, and the watch itself has no internal power of motion. given the absence of movement, the crown in this case is interpreted by the artist as a royal crown which adorns the watch, identifies time’s mastery over human beings rather than its utility to him. his majesty is attended by two reoccurring, fantastical Dalinian symbols: a contemplative angel, and a woman draped in shawls look on. Time reigns supreme over both art and reality.
