Advertisements For Watches

Thu Jul 15, 2004 9:47 pm

Hi everyone,

Today I met someone and just were we met there was on the wall a nice large picture of an add for a watch.
The time showing on the watch was 10:10.

My friend then told me that there is a legend for the reason why all advertisements for watches are at this hour.

I checked some other adds for watches and I saw that all the watches are at the same time when advertising.

Does any one know the reason for? Did anyone of you ever payed attention to that?

All my toughts are in aviation!!!

10:10 is the optimal, most eye-catching angle to show off the hands whilst enduring that the date aperture is clearly visible.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Yeah I have noticed this as I am a keen watch man. It is mainly due to what Ryan said.

This applies with all Rolex watches. Note they set the date to the 28th in all of their advertisements.
