Try "copy and paste" into your post, or if that doesn't work, try posting a link and someone else can help.

You may find it easier to use the gallery free trial, which has no charge for two weeks. Then you can definitely use copy and paste.

From the very small picture you sent I appears to be by the Baldwin company you already know about. If you can unscrew the bezel and crystal at the front, then I'm guessing the back will unscrew too, but I really think you should take it to a watchmaker, or failing that a good jeweller, and ask them to open it for you.

The Baldwin Jewellery Company was in San Francisco in 1909 during the earthquake, your watch looks like a private label made by one of the major watch Company’s for Baldwin. Illinois Watch Co. Elgin and Waltham made a lot of private labels for jewellers. 
If your watch has a screw on bezel it’s more likely it has a screwed back, they can be difficult to loosen sometimes. Take it to a jeweller or watchmaker and photograph the movement.
