We all know that watches and timepieces are frequent nowadays. Tag Heuer, Swatch, Swiss and lots more have been circulating the market, featuring a certain design that will surely establish their so-called ‘company trademark’. However, did anyone of you notice that in almost every watch commercial, the clock time is rather frozen into 10:10 or 10:10:38 in a more accurate way?
Most people say that geeks tend to notice the weirdest things. What they don’t really know is the real message behind this one. The reason behind 10:10 or 10:10:38 isn’t just a myth, after all.
If you’re somewhat interested to know, these are the most probable reasons behind this one.
- The 10:10 rather represents or symbolizes a smile. If you’re going to think of round watches set in this time, you will rather notice a smiling face. As we all know, a smile symbolizes a positive attitude or happiness.
- The 10:10 emphasizes the timepiece’s Brand Name. If you’re a watch owner, you may have already noticed that the manufacturer names are put on the upper half of the watch. If you’re going to set the time at 10:10, it somehow emphasizes the brand name, therefore boosting up promotions.
- It also says that you’ve made the right choice. Think of the clock hands this way. Not only it shows us a smile; because of the shorter hour hand, it also forms a ‘check mark’, meaning that buying the watch is the right choice for you.
- It also symbolizes victory. Other people think that aside from being a check mark, it also forms a letter ‘v’ for victory.
