Go out and get some quotes.
It would be an option to solder short pins to the lugs and use springbars with female ends, but of course fixed lugs are the more stable solution.
Soldering gold is no rocket science, if it reasonably thick. But soldering such thin gold asks for certain skills, and I'd not exercise on a watch, watching the lugs melting away. So better ask a goldsmith (rather than a watchmaker).

Any good Jeweler can repair this.

Dr. Ranfft, thank you, very informative as usual!
Jewelers around here are often middle men and have a 'master' craftsman in the 'back' that you can never talk to. Also not too familiar with good jewelers in this area thus asking locals for help.
