The title's inequality is proved for the operator bound-norm in a unitary space. An example is exhibited to show that the inequality cannot be improved by more than about 8% when n is large. The numerical range, of an n × n matrix Z with real spectrum, is then shown to be not arbitrarily different in shape from the spectrum.
