engravings continue down the lugs on Breton, and lug attachment point seems to be slightly recessed or below bezel top in subject watch.

Predisent case is much different than subject watch, engraving all the way full length from lug tip to lug tip.

I think Mark got this right, the engraving is on the lugs too, just worn mostly away.

Everything else points to the Breton, the rail down the sides, the semi-sunken crown, the set and shape of the lugs, and the bezel shape. It is just a different dialled variant, commonly seen in many models of this age.

We know this is definitely not a President, as the Bezel is totally different.
