as a reminder when seeking help on this message board it's always nice if you give us a picture. the reason why we need a picture is there can be lots of variations and we may not know exactly which one you're looking for.

I have just read that some old pocket watch pallet arbors were screwed.  Modern ones are press fit.

yes typically on modern watches and some pocket watches the pallet fork arbor are pressed in. If you look at the parts list for a lot of watches it will list the pallet fork arbor as a replaceable component.

as you have a image for an Omega 860 let's look at replacement arbor. The other amusement for arbors on modern watches are the limited quantity of them. So here's a link to the pallet fork arbor for the Omega 860 and notice all of the other watches that use the exact same pallet fork arbor quite a few

then things can get challenging with pocket watches because there's lots of variations especially Waltham. It's good that you didn't ask for a pallet fork there is several different for this watch. The good news is there's only one arbor and it looks like from the picture it's a friction. Often times if we could see the pallet fork you can see the threads and tell that the threaded type versus friction
