And the funny thing is

Mondaine clocks may be good for a train station, where they are meant to be read at a distance, by people with less than 20/20 vision

But it doesn't present any real advantage on an iPhone

Too much skeumorphism again

1. Clocks are fashion accessories, too. That is why http://www.mondaine.com/mondaine-watches/ sells watches with the clock's face.

2. I guess many people will try and read the clock while not wearing glasses
