Why the clock/watch advertisement always show 10:10 ?

I was curious on finding out why the clock/watch in advertisement always show 10:10?

Here is two suggested answers :

  • It looks the cleanest and most symmetrical and shows the brand name, or logo, which is usually just below the center of the face. Some companies have started using 10:08 or 10:12 as the time in an advert because it will keep the longer minute hand from blocking the numeral.
  • It is one of the better ways to view both hands on the watch. Consider that you view things top to bottom so by having it at 10:10 you get a clear view of the hands when glancing at a watch in a photo - versus having to find them if set at 5:40 for example.

Do you have any other answer?
