Movement sits too high on inner section

With the movement sitting as it does on the inner section, this leaves the dial suspended in the air. The movement needs to be dropper just far enough into the inner section so that the dial can touch the inner section.

My problem, here, is that the poles that connect the hands to the movement don't extend far enough with the dial domed in this way. I need the poles to be longer to be able to get above the dial. This will be especially true if there is layer of enamel on top of the copper, and even more so if the dial is done in cloisonné with a thicker layer of enamel.
