The hands come from the Duke. The dogtag was just a sticker. The Daphne up there on the right isn't an artist's concept but the catalog shot of the legendary Clear Daphne. As the name suggests, that Daphne had a transparent case and nickel-plated parts. Good luck finding one!

Two ivory-now-butterscotch Daphnes. The one on the right carries a unique dial (I can't find it on any other model) and showed up on Ebay in 2012.
