      I don't think you would have to have a DSLR to have great results, since you're going to have ample amount of light coming into the box.
      I think it relies more on photoshopping. I think cropping is essential, because it really centers the watch in the middle.

      Take my friend, for example. He uses a $60 point and shoot camera that dates back quite a few years ago, but does an excellent job at taking pictures.
      Here are couple of pictures taken by him. Notice the yellow tint to his pictures. He claims that it is due to his camera, but I think it might be because the color of light coming through the box.


      I think all he did was cropping the watch so it could be centered.

      So yeah, give it a try--the amount of light coming through the box is good enough to make a difference.

                    Thanks all, for the positive comments!
                    Also, a little follow-up seems to be due:

                    1. After using lights of 2 different colors--white and yellow(standard)--I found it best using the white lights, they're called "daylight" bulbs. I've tried using both the colors, after hearing that mixing the 2 makes it look natural. However, I wasn't a huge fan of having a rather yellowish orange tone on the pictures. I'd much prefer the white light.

                    2. The best was having only the lights coming through the "windows", especially when you have other lights coming in from the opening. Say, if you're working in a room, turn all the lights off, like your room, except for the lights that go into the box. This minimizes the light bulbs reflecting on your crystal.

                    I'll post pics when I have more time.

                    Thanks!
