I think you may find it hard to find a replacement dial to fit the 6309 most dial mods now are for 7s26 movements or 7002's .

'you could try the seller/modder from the Philippines loyswatches but I only think he sells complete watches rather than parts but may be worth an email to him .

Another one I have read about in the past is Rob at monsterwatches

Just a thought and I am hoping Domecurb may have a better idea than me but you might be able to fit the Dagaz MM dial using dial dots ? I am not sure if everything will align up properly though .

i would say is if its got the original movement then you will struggle to get a dial that fits unless you do as @seikojohn suggests and use dial dots [ yuk ] another option would be a complete movement and dial swap that may work IE 7s26 or nh36
i can see why you want to swap the dial though......it doesnt look right with that shroud

i would put one of these in it

the black one, because the other, despite the photograph, is green and unless you are Kermit the Frog you shouldnt wear green Evil or Very Mad plus i think the black one is more true to the original MM

Would that work with the day date window as these only have the date window

yes you just wouldnt see it, but if you swapped the movement for an NH35 it wouldn't be an issue and you wouldn't need dial dots

Would the NH35 movement fit in the case without any problems ?

it should, but a few measurements would go amiss
