Any thought on the Hour and Minute Hands William?

Non Bulova Hour Hand? (which would seem odd considering the condition of the rest of the Watch)

Out of my league... However I can't say I recall ever seeing that style of hand, on that design/era of Bulova???

William,

Yes.

According to the ads the 'F' variant is a Yellow engraved Bezel with White Dial on a matching Yellow Bracelet.
