It is long as 2 hours 26 minutes more, an extravagant B-movie homage that is longer, darker, and more unwieldy than the genre demands. However, it is a visually-stunning work, the Castle was beautifully pictured and I wish I could go there for a Final Treatment!
There are a few scenes that the Director camera spots the watch Lockhart wears, It is a Rolex Air-King,
Model Ref 5700 circa 1970s.
First time he visited the reception and he was asked to come back next day a visiting time had passed. He looked at his Rolex… Big Close Shot…the time on the watch is 3:07
Horrible scene that someone drilled his front tooth without any anesthesia.
Looks at His Air-King again, time is also 3:07
Another one was he was lying in bed woke up after three days after the car accident. He looked as his Air King again…and it was stopped at again 3:07.
Is there a hint on what 3:07 means to the Story?
This is the last scene showing his Air-King.
It Air-King an inserted advertisement from Rolex?

Often dubbed the "Warrior Watch," the Rolex Air King is a magnificent watch though it does not seem carry a lot of story nor talking point. Air-King is the Simplest watch from Rolex, it simplicity is its beauty., John McCain is known for his Rolex Air King.
The RAF (British Royal Air Force) members were regarded as heroes in the 1930's. These men flew countless missions, and in the face of such danger triumphed in spite of overwhelming odds and meager aircraft. Discarding their standard-issue, low-quality watches, these brave pilots instead used Rolex Oyster Perpetual religiously in their missions.
The founder of Rolex Hans Wilsdorf was pleased that he chose to honor these air borne heroes by creating a dedicated line of manual wind Oyster watches fit for the sky.
Rolex started producing bigger watches and gave them names such as "Rolex Air Lion," "Rolex Air Tiger," "Rolex Air King," and even "Rolex Air Giant" before WWII.
Big Watch meant 32-34mm only at that time, don’t compare with current 47, 54 mm!
In the end, most of this line never became popular with the general public. However, Rolex decided to continue a single model within this line, the "Rolex Air King".
One of the most iconic Air King models is the Air King 5500. The Rolex Air King 5500 history covers 37 years. For a majority of these years, the Rolex Air King 5500 was left untouched and was considered to be a classic and very coveted model.
