Vintage case question...

Could anyone tell me when V&C first began to use screw down case backs? I don't need the exact day or month, but a year would be nice!

1933 with this watch which is also one of the brand's 1st steel models, it has a screwed case back and a screwed bezzel. This model inspired the 222 and later the Overseas!

The brand used screw back cases here and there during the 30s and 40s but its only in the late 40s (around 1947) that the brand started making screwed case backs more regularly.

Thanks Alex!
