Does anyone know if watch hands from other watches will fit South Bend watches? Is there a watch hand interchange list?

If you have a staking tool and a set of reamers there is a wide variety of hands that will interchange (with some modification).
Otherwise you need to look at the hole diameters. I've never seen an interchange list (although I wouldn't be surprised if one existed somewhere).
So the measurements you're dealing with are:
18s SB 2.40 / 1.25 / 0.30
16s SB 1.68 / 1.04 / 0.32
12s SB 1.60 / 1.00 / 0.25
18s SB ~20.0 / ~16.0 / 5 - 6
16s SB ~20.0 / ~13.0 / 5 - 6
12s SB ~19.0 / ~13.0 / 5 - 6
For the second hands all of the Hampden 12s second hands I've run across are 0.25 and they came in a wide variety of styles. Most other second hands are 0.20 and are hard to fit unless they're split (which really isn't advisable).
Here's a list of some other brands from the Jules Borel Catalog. If you make your own interchange list please share it with us.
