    What's with this TIME and DATE???

    I was looking for images on Mygshock.com and I was surprised and wondering if someone could explain me why all the watches that I have looked present the same date and time to the second on this images???


    It looks akward...but at the same time organized, my grandma used to say nothing like the Japanese organization...

    Some images to prove my theory...



    Do you get it?

    Yeah, puzzling isn't it? This has been discussed a couple of times before actually, and many tried to make sense of why this was so, but still... nothing conclusive so far.


    Count me in, I've been wanting to know the story behind it as well.



    best regards,

    Wouldn't 18:58 58 still be a correct time and show the digits best?

    This exact time and date utilizes the digital display the most. It uses the most amount of space and digital elements on the display and therefor looks the best.

    On analogue watches the time showed on promo shoots is most often 10.10

    Thats 24 hour time which is not used all over the world for instance the USA. Therefor it is not used in promo shoots.

    Fair enough, but for the date "8-30" still "takes up most screen real estate" like the trivia page says and I think MO taks up more than SU as well..and then the matter of that last "0" in 58 seconds "8" takes more space...who knows why they really do it..
