The 3 piece case has the facetted lugs. Plenty of service history records marked in the case back. There are areas of wear at the case edge, and fairly even patina or discolouration of the dial surface. The movement is crisp. the facetted/stepped lugs show wear and there are some dints in the case back, possibly from resting on a metal bracelet as well as some polishable scratches.
