At the very beginning of the movie, we see Dr. Stephen Strange ask a colleague to cover his watch while in the operating room.
We then see Strange looking through his vast collection of watches just before his accident.
I never caught anything in the dialogue about having an affinity for watches or having a fear of watches in the operating room, but it seems almost foreshadowing that his destiny would be tied to time.
Was this ever mentioned in either the movie or the source comics as to whether or not Stephen Strange had a "thing" about time before becoming Dr. Strange, the superhero?
