What's the time?

TIL from the radio...

I have been on this planet absorbing advertisements for umpty 45 years and only NOW I notice that watch ads, invariably, the analog watch is set to 10:10.  Or thereabouts.  It's almost 90% of the examples.  In new ads and old ads.

What the?!

That's the sort of thing I usually pick up.  But the radio man had to tell me.

I would guess the same reason credit cards are swiped upside down in most ads, all the better to display the prominent logos.
