I think you will need to post a picture to get any specific suggestions.

I have used a soft adhesive like RTV or Silicone
to hold in clock bodies with the broken retaining ring.
(just a dab of adhesive on each corner of the movement).
of course, when the clock finally dies for good,
you will have to dig it out with a chisel.

UNLESS – you are talking about the ring that holds the glass
and face in place ?? I would still use a few drops of silicone.

Silicone is a good idea alternatively I’ve used an O-ring or elastic band.
