Maltese Cross

Just wanted to find out when VC started putting the Maltese Cross on their dials? Was their a period of time when VC put it on the dial then removed them only to reapply them later on over the years?  
Also, when did VC put them on the crown?
Your help is much appreciated! Thanks.

I believe first use of the Maltese cross was 1880... Do I win a prize?
What made VC choose the Maltese Cross?

The VC Maltese Cross is not a Templar Knights emblem but

inspired from a component in the movement used to prevent overwinding.

For the Maltese Cross on the crown click here  There was no specific strategy on the use of the Maltese Cross on the dial until the 50s, until then it was used on and off without any specific reason.
