18k Vulcain Bouret PW

Vulcain Bouret PW
I need to replace the hands on this 18k Vulcain Bouret PW and would greatly appreciate any advice. My grandfather gave this to me when I was 10/11 years old. My mother and grandmother were not pleased but HA HA at 47 years old I still have it! It is in perfect running condition and is marked Vulcain Bouret 18K on both the movement and case. Sixteen jewels and 1 adj.
The case is decorated with a small band of blue enamel in the Greek key motif on both the bezel and the case back and all along the edge there is some decorative scroll work. I have no idea if it's a particularly good watch or not. If anyone knows please educate me.
I vaguely recall that the original hands were fairly decorative/ornate; I know they weren't the standard baton type. So, I need to replace the hands and hopefully you who know much more than I will tell me what to do! Thanks much and look forward to any suggestions, information, or comments.
*I took the pictures without the watch crystal as I am waiting for hands to re-assemble the 18k Vulcain Bouret PW.
