Why is 10:09 often display on Apple Watch for promotional purposes? Ever had when you were in a watch store and the time displayed on the clock showed exactly 10:10? Not only in stores; even if you look at promotional ads on various platforms for watches are also mostly fixed at this time.
To answer the question on the matter, the clock hand placed at 10.10 is actually related to the appearance; or more precisely the position of the logo on the clock displayed.
The watchmakers are understood to think that the needle placed at the 10.10 time position will give space to their brand logo to look more beautiful; and more suitable to be displayed to customers.
However, unlike other watchmakers, the Apple technology company that produces the Apple Watch has set a time of one minute in advance on their watch displays for advertising and promotional purposes, namely at 10:09 and 9:41.
This indirectly raises questions among consumers; and observers who wonder if the real reason the brand from the United States is not just following what other watch manufacturers have done before.

Why 9:41 and 10:09?
The most popular theory as reported by Business Insider is; because it is said to be synonymous with the launch time of the first iPhone model; by Steve Jobs in 2007.
In the event, Jobs launched the first iPhone model at 9:41 am; and to this day it is still understood to be one of the strongest theories saying; why the clock on this Apple Watch is set at that time.
Not only does it use a 9.41 clock display as mentioned earlier, but Apple also takes a different approach compared to most other watch manufacturers when not using the 10.10 setting but instead they choose 10.09.
As for the answer to why they chose 10.09; it is believed to be because Apple is understood to want a variation; as suggested by Dave Mark on The Loop portal.
