23 K it is. Interesting case, I haven't seen one of these before.

I have improved the hands of my Bulova watches in two ways: in some cases I have removed the hands and I sanded with very fine sandpaper to remove the rust. I was lucky that rust was not as deep and I have not removed the gold color. In other cases  I have bought a similar watch, damaged and cheap to use the hands, serving other parts for future repairs. Of course the best option is to get a new old stock hands, but not always possible. Good luck!

Jim,

I have a number of NOS hands both Bulova and Jobber and in the next day or so I will finally might have a little time to myself and will check to see what I have.

 

I think I might have some Dauphine style with the lume insert that might fit and would look correct.

Possible other styles as well, just don't know off the top of my head what.
