All of the comments were helpful. Those that I disagree with taught me something (about the minds of the voters particularly).
The focus was on the glass and the shallow DOF hurt this pic.

low quality hurts this otherwise delicate and complex image.

There is a nice balance to your composition without the picture feeling too contrived. The lighting is so even it is hard to distinguish between all the details in the watch. The lighting from above makes some reflections in the glass which are confusing. Lighting from a low angle might create some nice shadows. Wish it were sharper.

Use antother WB. You could also have used the operation Auto Levels in Photoshop.

5 - Good concept. Different cropping, lighting, more detail, would make it a better picture for me.

A little more work with colors and levels is def needed here.

Good composition. I like how you cropped out part of the watch's edge. Lacks a tad of crispness to my eye.

Interesting choice of subject. I like the sharpness and the surprisingly varied colours.
