It looks to me like the print on your dial is correct. I'm assuming that's just distortion from an old ill-fitting or warped plastic crystal causing it to look out of square. But the configuration is right.
As to a source for hands, I don't really know. If it were me, I'd check with any watchmakers you deal with, supply houses (Otto Frei or Jules Borel come to mind) or eBay sellers who have a lot of hands and explain what you need. I don't know what those are really called. I've seen dart, plume, spade and other names used. But they're definitely a common style. If you can provide hole sizes (60 for minute and 120 for hour, IIRC) and length from hole center to tip, somebody should have them. I can try to look among my parts, but I'm honestly not very good about digging up stuff like this.
