I guess there are many techniques with getting the perfect shot, but I personally believe in a few basics: lighting, depth of field and composition. You need to understand how the watch reflects or absorbs light, and you need to find an interesting placement. After that, you can even start to layer with objects to make it more interesting.

Here are some of my attempts, taken with a mobile phone camera (Huawei P10). All handheld shots (with exception of the wristshot which was taken in my car, at the lights) but with a small, wireless LED lamp which I can move around to manipulate my lighting. All the images below were captured on the phone and also edited with basic image editing apps that are available on Google Play/App Store.

My humble opinion is that in photography, the most common limitation is the person behind the picture, rather than being a device or hardware limitation.

Comments & feedback always welcome
