What year was this tool made? Thank you

[There is no date mark on the cutting tool. I think it can be assumed that Andrew Paul acquired his complete set of watchmaker's tools when setting up his own business post WW1 on his demobilisation following service in the Flying Corps. Thus the year range could be 1918 - 20 - Administrator]
