I'm hoping someone here can steer me to a source for Superluminova watch hands in the standard hole sizes, 1.20/.70/.20. A couple of my favorites have ETA's inside, with non-lumed hands...which makes them less useful than I'd like. Actually, Seiko 'lumibrite' hands in these sizes would be good as well.
But...no luck so far with the US suppliers I know of.
On the bay, some Asian sellers offer the larger sizes (150/90/25) that LOOK well lumed (tho no real info in the ads). But these are too big anyway.
Any tips, gentlemen?
Thanks.

What lengths do you need? Cousins in the UK stock lume hands in the right fitting sizes but only in 12mm x 8mm and 12.5mm x 8.5mm lengths

Maybe you could use quartz Seiko hands - but you'd need to get them broached to fit (reamed out) as they're 110/65/18. It would be easier to use Citizen quartz hands though - as some of them are 120/70/ with second hands varying from 15 to 20. There are various other manufacturers who use similar sizes, but Citizen/Miyota seem more readily available.
I think that the best solution would be to get the originals re-lumed, as lume materials are readily available on a near par with Superluminova.
