Mondaine sued Apple for using their dial on the first iPhones and won, the dial of the Mondaine auto is from the Swiss Railway clocks they designed around WWII...

The swiss railway clock was not designed by Mondaine. The story reads different: In 1944, Hans Hilfiker, a Swiss Engineer and Designer and employee of the Federal Swiss Railways, created a clock, which has become known as the “Official Swiss Railways Clock”. In 1986 the Mondaine watch company, owned by the Bernheim family, took the blueprint of the iconic design of the Railways Clock and turned it into a watch collection.

How about wall clocks that look like watches. They sell these everywhere in China now. Talk about in your face counterfeiting, at about 12" in dia they're not exactly discreet.
