I found the 12-40 on my E-M1 and a generic bounce flash with radio control to be competent for this use. You can't do extreme dial close ups but I have separate lenses for that.

I apologize for the dust, weird reflections, and some depth of field problems. It's extremely challenging taking photos in a bar.

These are all 1000px, there's a 1400px wide photo available if you click on the photo. I don't really use Flickr but it's convenient for sharing. I am at http://www.jaegraphy.com

Feel free to share these out but please keep my signature in the photos. I do not grant any rights for use of these photos for any commercial purposes.

Nice images!! Even more impressive is that someone goes into a bar to shoot watch macros! :)

Ditto. That's a gorgeous watch. A BP FF and a JLC Reverso are two grail watches for me.

Yes, I love this one but I loved my original re-issue of this iconic piece.

This one was take with an EPL2 on stock lens

And a couple more shots, all taken with an E-M5 and various macro or non-macro lenses.

Except the last three.

Love all the shots, just beautiful! Only criticism is the watch on the woman's wrist seems too large, still a gorgeous photo though.

can you provide any tips on your technique? Selection of backdrops, lighting, post processing.

I wrote an article I can link later.

As long as you lens can do a bit of close focus, it mostly comes down to flash modifiers, polarizes, background, and cleaning the object.
