My wife's watch. I put it on a piece of black glass I got from Hobby Lobby shined my Home Depot halogens in various configurations. Used a piece of white board to reflect some of the light back in.

Not much editing done...USM @ 75% and cropped a bit, converted from RAW to JPG and uploaded it:)

Nice pic, good use of the rule of thirds. I do agree with Idalleck on the watch's face sharpness issue.
Just being picky, Rolex ads always have the time set at 10 to 10 :)

It might be a little tightly cropped on the top...

Nice, with the right copy it could click.

Well done - very elegant looking. The grayish background is perfect for this watch. May be a bit stronger if the watch was more diagonally placed.

Try diffusing your light source and putting some white space above and to the left of your image.

Wonderful color, like the reflection. Have you considered a little additional background on the left and a bit less on the right side still keeping the subjet off center. Also how would this look with greater sharpness on the face of the watch without loosing the drop off on the DOF on the back of the band.

Beautifully shot, beautifully lit. I'd like to see more room around it on the top & left. Top 20 if not top 10.

Watch seems to crowd the frame at the top and the left. A little different crop would have improved this otherwise perfect image. Well done.
