I’m sure I am reinventing the wheel here, but I had a case with a stubbornly stuck screw down case back and I came up with a good way to hold the watch to apply more torque with my case wrench.
The lug width on this particular case is 20mm so I clamped two short pieces of 3/4 inch square dowel upright into my vice just far enough apart to accommodate the watch body in between them - the dowels fill the entire space between the lugs, holding the watch securely.
Put some foam padding under the watch face and wrenched away - no shifting, no scratches, opened nice and easy.

The inspiration for this “device” came from the Bergeron case wrench watch holder but mine is a touch cheaper.
