I tried a search, looked at the technical documents and still can't figure it out. When I originally dis-assembled the piece a 6309-8679, the dial was rotating around loose inside the case. I've looked on the side of the holding ring & see 2 dial screws, but they dont seem to do anything? What hold the dial in place?? I'm sure someone's going to make this look simple. Thanks!

Sounds like someone broke the dial feet off in the past. These are two tiny round pins soldered to the dial before it is finished at the factory. The screws you found under the dial ring would normally grab these pins and hold the dial steady in its correct position.

There are little double-sided adhesive dots made for instances such as this as well as for affixing a dial meant for a different watch while doing a modification. These dots can be placed on the movement plate away from moving parts to grip the dial. Two are usually sufficient.

I'd be happy to send a few if you PM me with your address.
