OK, now it all makes sense. There are TWO different types of these things! Dave's has a retaining clip that goes on the spring bar ends while Jerins's doesn't use spring bars. The pins on Jerin's version are threaed and screw into the lug adapter (and would probably be the more expensive to reproduce.

Haha... boy am I dumb!  I have both the correct ones... one was just put on backwards and I didn't pay attention when the watch was turned around.

What a fascinating watch. You should be able to make the extenders with some brass and a jeweller's piercing saw and files. You could then do a heavy electroplate of gold, or even cut them from gold in the first place, casting would require extra metal. When I was at watchmaking school, I melted down a pile of 14K rings and broken chains, etc, and made little ingots, thinking I would have lots to work with if I ever needed it. 

Well, only a couple of years later and I used it all up! And now gold is 4 times the price.
