    Welcome to CS!

    This pic look like photos I would see on ebay website, meaning it's look just like a snapshot.
    The pic also lack in contrast and sharpness. You need to PP it.

    Shooting watches is not easy. Need alot of trial and error.

    besides using light tent...
    its not compulsory but i think its more appealing if you set the time to 10:10 or 1:50..

    Hope you don't mind me being frank, I think this face on shot with the harsh lighting and lack of contrast does not work. Putting the watch right in the watch casing doesn't looks appealing too.
    I suggest you change the angle of the watch and using a plain and an uncluttered background (preferably Black /White in your case)would work better. The lighting also needs to be more even. That's just my opinion though.

    well... since you wanna know how to improve...

    step 1 - remove it out of the box
    step 2 - find a suitable background to place the item
    step 3 - postition light in a position its supposed to be (be creative yet showcase the items with minimum reflection)
