I ordered a replacement dial for my watch which has either a SW200 or ETA2824 movement. I just got the new dial in, however when I flip over the new part and compare it with my old one, the pins on the back are reversed. One pin is above the date window, the other pin in the opposite place in a mirror fashion. I'm not sure if this means I have a different dial or not or if there are a couple of places on the movement to put the feet. In the photo, the new dial is the shiny one. The darker one if my original. It's a little hard to see the feed but they are in a reversed position. Can anyone help out? Thank you!

Is the date orientation the same on both dials? ... example: both at 3 o'clock? without seeing the front it is kind of hard to diagnose. SW200 and ETA 2824 dials should be swappable.

Sounds like the dials were made for different crown positions perhaps?

You can always remove them and use an adhesive like "dial dots" to affix the dial to the movement. I prefer not to, but the few times I have I have had no issues with them.
