    Removing hands from Braille pocket watch

    Hello, I think this is my first post to this forum, but I'm a frequent visitor and occassional poster in the watchmaking forum. I have some experience repairing quartz wrist watches but am endeavoring to learn more about mechanical movements. Toward that end, I have acquired a Braille pocket watch running a Unitas 431/445.

    I'm trying to remove the hands, they appear to be secured with a screw. Turning the screw turns the hands. Any instruction regarding removal would be appreciated.

    Best regards,
    Doug
