How do you wind this up?

I always admit to not having much clock or watch experience... but usually i can figure out how to wind up a clock. Even rim wound car clocks. But this one I cant figure out. It does set the time with the small "crown" inside on the "movement" but it does not wind. If I pull it out it seems to do nothing. Maybe this is where it is supposed to be wound but it's broken, stuck in set time mode?

Looks to me like something is missing on the back, maybe winding knobs?

How is the big plate on the back held in place? Are those holes for screws or do they line up with other holes in the back of the movement which could be the missing winding knobs?

Good afternoon, Kerry!

Any possibility that you push that knob IN to wind? As it sits, when that knob is in it's "normal" position, is that how you set the hands?

Best regards!

Kerry, could you tell us the number of the Swiss patent (the number following the cross-shaped mark). I have tried enlarging it but it is still too blurred to be sure.
