It's probably for flashy newsrooms, where they like to have clocks with the
time in London, Moscow, Tokyo, etc. It's nice to have all the second hands

The challenge there is to keep the clocks correct for summer time, which
changes on different dates in Europe and of course in the other direction
in the Southern Hemisphere.
