    I was having a hard time getting the watch in focus like I wanted, so instead I shot these soft focus type of pics. In PS, I made a copy of the layer and ran a gausian blur and used overlay and hard light blending.

    After I took the pics I noticed how the watch wasn't centered up and how I didn't have the camera squared up so it feels awkward looking at them :-/

    Now you did it! (joking of course). Brave attempt. Personally I fear shooting watches and most reflective surfaces.
    Since you said you would reshoot... The shots seem to be about the box. Maybe not include it at all? Do not be afraid to try all positions and angles. Keep a close eye on reflections and hot spots. Try bouncing the light off of foamcore. When photographing watches and or time pieces in general; they should read 10:10.
    Be sure to post the reshoot. If it does not drive you totally crazy consider a career in it.
