I really like the reflections in the face of the watch.

the colors and composition are excellent but the out of focus writing at the bottom is bothering my eye :S Maybe you can try another shot, when you have more time, with a deeper DOF, to get all the writing in focus. On the 12, is is a diamond or is the glass cracked?

The blue X is wonderful for grabbing the attention and drawing the eye in then out again on the rays. Looks like this watch has seen some use.

I really like your composition here, well thought out. This watch looks like it's been very well loved :o)

we all get pressed for time. It would be interesting to see what else you could do with this watch in a repeat session where you had more time to play with lighting, angles, etc.

I like the blue bands, which I assume are not part of the watch but an effect of the lighting.

instead of turning down the light (though it probably should be a bit more diffuse) i'd suggest just cranking down the aperture and get the whole watch in focus... say f/22... that'll eat up some of the light

The strong lighting seems to make this a little hard to view.....
Maybe tey and take the shot again with less light and not so close.

Very harsh light on this one. Direct flash may be the reason. Have to bounce the light off many sides or send through a white sheet to evenly illuminate the steel without producing flash reflections. With your current portfolio, I am frankly surprised that you chose this image to start with.
