Hi All,

Not sure if this was been discussed here before but to the observant eye, all watch hands in watch photos point to eight minutes past ten, 37 seconds.
I actually came across / stumbled on this observation by chance.
One day I was taking photos of my Omega PO, and in one photo the time was ten minutes to two, and in another photo it was half past one.
Naturally, when I was reviewing these photos in post processing, my eye was naturally drawn to the ten minutes to two photo, because of the natural 'v' formation.
Ever since then, when I looked at all the omega brochures the time on the hands were 10:08 (the same v formation).

I agree with you. I think it's purely esthetics as the hands block elements of the dial the least in that position in addition to making it look more symmetrical.

Watch photography is fascinating! I was looking for some info about it in preparation to sell some pieces and uncovered a whole new world. YouTube has great vids.

Cheers!
