Wall_clockWhenever we go to clock stores, we will see these watches or clocks that are always set to 10:10, we all know that there are good justifications behind this practice. So why do clocks show 10:10? Many speculations aroused about clocks in the stores set on 10:10 time, where in one hand of the clock points to number 10 and the other one is pointing to number 2. The reasons below are just theories but makes a lot of sense.

1.) Clock and watch makers normally if not always, put their logo under the number 12. So placing the hands of the clock to 10 and 2, helps to frame and show the logo.

2.) When we look at the clock and it shows t 10:10, it makes a resemblance to a smiley face. It is better to see it that way, because it can produce a positive vibes at the store and will then increase the sales of the clocks and watches.
