apple lawyer "as you can clearly see their arms are a 0.5mm thickness while ours are a 0.4mm thickness. They also have a thick silver bezel where we use a very thin grey bezel. Obviously they are clearly different than us and you should award us a new patent."

They get a patent for it because the patent system is broken.

6 months later in a new court.

Apple lawyer "as you can clearly see they are copying our patented, 100% original clock design. They mimic the thickness of our arms and markers. They use a rounded bezel, just like us. It may be much thicker than ours, but its still copies the look and feel of apple's patents. We are asking for 10 Billion in damages from the swiss"
