The dustproof crowns won't work with these cases. The opening is quite a bit smaller. I used to have this model. I used a low profile white crown, large enough in diameter to fill most of that gap. With the white/pink/white layout, I think white sort of continues the motif best. Here's a (not very good) pic of mine:

And Cary's right about those hands. They're not correct. I think the hands and dial on mine were all original. The good news is that this style of hand is pretty common and generic replacements shouldn't be too hard to find. If you can get a pair that fit regardless of color, International will plate them white (rhodium, I think). They even do seconds hands, but yours already looks correct to me. And I'd get the dial redone in pink too.
