Day 29: Does that look like a smile?

Have you ever wondered why clock and watch ads anywhere in the world show them preset at 10:10?

Well, one of the theories is that the company logo would get displayed in between both the hands perfectly forming a frame. And it would also look like a smile. :)
Maybe because originally the standard used to be 8:20 and somehow that created a frown!

To be exact, the industry standard now is that the time should be 10:09:36
