Also, if you take a lot of watch photos, e.g. for eBay, do look into making or purchasing a macro softbox. It makes life way easier if you're photographing anything that tends to produce distracting reflections. The simplest softbox that'll get the job done is a translucent white bucket. Put a powerful-enough light on one side, and shoot away. Reflections are tricky, and the desk light solution isn't really effective at avoiding them.
