Thanks to Kerry (kerry10456) for guiding me through the removal of the watch movement from the watch case.
Under the bezel (the crystal & rim), there are 3 screws on the outside of the dial (see photo #2). With these screws removed, and the watch rotated to the most forward position, I was able to remove the movement from the back of the case (see photo #3).
Once the movement was out (see photo 1), I checked the pivot post connections. The pivot post are inserted through the side of the case, the ends spread apart, and then soldered in place. They are solidly attached with no movement allowed.
The movement doesn't appear to be very dirty from what I can see, but it does not run, so I hope to get it in running order at some time.
Photo #4 is the patent drawing design that was applied for by Russel A. Cowles, filed on Feb. 28, 1922 and granted on Sept. 12, 1922. Thanks to aghcollect & walksoftly for finding this patent & drawing for me.
A big thanks to all who are so helpful on CW,
