    How do i take a good picture of a watch?

    Hi All,

    I have a watch that i am going to sell on ebay. I am finding it very hard to actual take a decent picture of it without reflections on it etc.
    Are there any tricks to photographing watches?

    Cheers Dave

    Also take it at a slight angle, taking it straight on will show refrlections.

    I have tried all that so far but you can still see a reflection.
    I was thinking i would have to try and take the picture in some sort of box or do it in a dark room with just one light source
