What did you have to do in Photoshop with this picture?

Did you underexpose it a bit to "remove" some of the areas where the velvet bag may have shown?

Can you post the unedited photo?

I've got a lightbox I made from PVC but I was using dark blue fabric with it. I need to pick up some black fabric and then try some pics.
The original shot was a bit underexpose so I had to brighten it up with levels. I also removed some of the yellow tint that the original photo with "color balance". I bumped up the green on the hands and hour marks a bit with hue and saturation. Finally I had to removed some dust on the velvet bag and watch.

Original photo...



After...



I've also tried using typing paper as a light box. Worked out pretty nice but I like the black/dark look of this Flight Master shot better than my Tudor shot...

-2, 60w lamps from Staples
-wire hangers reshaped to hold typing paper
-typing paper to diffuse the light

The camera was set...

Canon 20D
Canon 28-70mm
f/8
1.4 sec
100 ISO
Kenko tube, can't remember which one I used
