    Let's not confuse watch with time. There are many great sci-fi movies that involve the concept of "time", for example: Arrival to name a recent one.
    Please think of movies where the watch itself figured very prominently.
    I'll start with: Interstellar
    The watch: Hamilton Khaki Automatic

    The Edge, with Alec Baldwin, Elle McPherson, and Anthony Hopkins. Legends of the Fall. Men in Black. Hugo (all right. That featured a tower clock.)

    I wouldn't say that the watch figured very prominently, but it's an iconic connection, especially given the popularity of the ref. 6105

    "Hail, Ceasar" features a few watches with regular 2 or 3 second shots lingering on the wrists ... it was driving me nuts that I couldn't actually identify any of them, particularly this hexagonal (edit: looking again that the picture, of course I mean one of those 8 sided hexagons or, as they are known in some parts of the world, octagons) cased piece of Deco perfection:

    I mean the obvious choice is Spectre with the SM300, and various other bond flicks, naturally. There's a pretty cool scene in the Marvel film 'Doctor Strange' featuring a draw full of watches, and his JLC is somewhat important to the story line.

    Looks like the online IMDb for watches in movies no longer exists. :(
