Hmm. Not bad.
The Spy on the Quäckenbirdt's design

The Quäckenbirdt is a community-created promotional secondary PDA weapon for the Spy. It is a silver and golden plated watch with a blue, monochrome screen containing an image of a pixelated duck.

This weapon functions identically to the Invis Watch.

This item was awarded in Genuine quality to players who pre-purchased Hitman: Absolution on Steam before November 19th, 2012.

The Quäckenbirdt was later contributed to the Steam Workshop, at Valve's request.
