The reason for watches set at 10:10 or 8:20 for photographs is so that the manufacturer's name and other dial identifications are most likely visible. Naturally 9:15 or 2:45 would work nicely but there's something odd about the hands being straight across (and they would hide a date window on most calendar watches).

This is an old tradition in advertising (my game).
