there are numerous reasons, in addition to the above, it typically leaves the logo/maker name unobstructed, it has a balanced appearance from left to right, etc. Marketers believe the watch is "smiling". Also, the traditional time for photographs is to have the second hand at about 35 seconds, if applicable. so 10:10:35. Balanced, but not exactly at 30 seconds, that would be gauche
Every so often, I like to remind myself of the dress watch I would buy if I would buy myself a watch.
This once came in white gold, which is how I was shown it. It may still, but this is the only version on the website.
In white gold, it is the most perfect, most beautiful dress watch. If I have ever done anyone here a favor that you feel like returning, you may buy this for me.
I like that a lot but I like the hobnail patters on the white gold simple Calatrava Pateks a little more.
