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.
Here's a article : http://www.tabletopstudio.com/documents/watch_photography.htm

the shadow is to harsh. perhaps you wish to a small and cheap studio light tent of this purpose

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

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)
