A Seiko winding wall clock?

While visiting IOI Marriott, I chanced on a wall that has a Seiko "Station Clock" hung on it. When I saw the winding stud near the centre of the dial, I was impressed. It is seldom you still find winding wall clocks. However, the way the graphics on the word "STATION CLOCK" doesn't look right.

After further investigation, I found out this this Seiko is in fact a modern clock using quartz technology. The winding stud was just put for show.

This brings out a very important question: Why is the need to be similar to something that is not the same?
