This question may have been posted before (or it maybe just a dumb question on my part :-d) but...why do (most?) watch companies showcase their watches at around 10:06/10:10 mark (on the dial)? I noticed this while flicking through some old IW magazines.

Hi -

It provides the best possible view of any complication on the watch, i.e. chrono sub dials, day/dates/combo thereof, etc. etc.
