Hi James   Try sending a private message to member JP, as he has hands, and sometimes these threads move throught the queue so quickly he doen't see hand requests.

I can't find JP in the member data base which is strange because he is a panel member.

Just a little more help.

Again Thanks

The 10AP Conqueror model had the spade style lumed hands, which are very hard to find. You may need to extend your search to other mid 1920s watches that share that style hands.

Thanks for the tip.

However there is no info on the 10AP on what  might be iinterchangeable  as far as parts.

Unless the team knows were I might find such a lisi.

According to Besfit, the 10AP is a LePhare Ebauche, and does not interchange with other 10''' Bulova movts, in any useful way. The staff, pallet arbor, mainspring, stem, and balance are all different. Now, whether the hands from another movt might fit, I cannot say, you're going to have to measure the hour wheel and cannon pinion post to see what the diameter is for the hands.
