Thanks LTZ470! I find f/13-16 is perfect to get the watch and strap in focus. f/8 isn't bad but if the watch isn't head on you'll get some of the watch case out of focus. f/4 can be fun to isolate the logo or a specific part of the watch. Next time I'll give it a try.

Here's my setup. A couple of pieces of black card board, drafting mylar and some stones or whatever I want to prop my watch on. My light source is a wall mount light fixture with a 100w bulb pointing up, have no choice it's fixed pointing up I can move the fixture left and right. It's mounted about 30" above my setup. That's pretty much it.

Camera settings are...

-Manual mode
-Mirror lock up
-remote switch
-ISO 100
-f/stop from f8-16, depending the DOF you want
-Kenko tubes
