Belgian watch company Komono has paid homage to its countryman and 20th century master of Surrealism, René Magritte, with a capsule collection of six timepieces. The Winston and Estelle watches pay tribute to six different Magritte masterpieces, ranging from “The Castle of the Pyrenees” to ”The Art of Living,” by printing elements of the works—floating castles, eyes, noses, hammers and eggs—onto leather wristbands, each embossed with Magritte’s signature.

The collection drops mid-May at select stockists. Watch the capsule’s promotional video above and click here for more on the surreal collab.
