Iconic clock design stolen by Apple?

In this segment of today’s news, we find that Apple is being accused of copying an iconic clock design of Hans Hilfiker—a well-known Swiss engineer and designer.  The picture below depicts the recently added clock design update in the iPad, and right next to it is the clock design which the Swiss Federal Railway owns the trademark to.
“SBB is the sole owner of the trademark and copyright of the railway clock. The railway company will now get in touch with Apple. The aim is a legal, as well as a financial solution. It is not right that one [Apple] simply copies the design.”
