Jaeger-LeCoultre in a film
of Marvel Studios

The Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar makes its appearance on the big screen, within the film 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness', produced by Marvel Studios, directed by Sam Raimi. Already present within the 2016 film 'Doctor Strange', the watch continues to play an important role in the story of the protagonist, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, a long-time friend of the brand.

In a nutshell, and not wishing to spoil the plot of the film for those who have not yet seen it, it can be said that the timepiece represents an essential reference for several key points during Doctor Strange's journey into the world of the mystic arts, serving as a reminder regarding significant events in the protagonist's past and present. Furthermore, the Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual Calendar embodies in the film a serene physical presence, traditional roots and a continuous measurement of linear time. In particular, the perpetual calendar appears to be a particularly apt complication, with its dial offering multiple timelines and the characteristic of indicating the correct date over the course of many lifetimes.

With its understated and refined style (perfect for the elegance of Stephen Strange's 'plainclothes' version), the watch has a 39 mm diameter by 9.2 mm thick case, available in steel or rose gold. The dial offers moon phase indications (at 12 o'clock), date hand (at 3 o'clock), month (at 6 o'clock), day hand (at 9 o'clock) and year on four digits between 7 and 8. The movement is the Jaeger-LeCoultre automatic calibre 868 with a 38-hour power reserve), visible from the back side, with côtes de Genève decoration and perlage and anglage finish. The watch does not require corrections until 2100.
