Tell us about this vintage beauty! What year?

thanks, Max - this is 145.022-68 transitional....early '68 model that bridges between the older 321 movements and the 1861 movements 

Thanks to the "use up the old parts before you use the new parts" philosophy of the time, these transitional models keep some of the older features the 321 such as applied logo, DON, step dial, long markers, etc and case them around the 1861. 

And being "pre-moon" presents only the Hippocampus on the case back 

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and mine is has, as you can see, lived a honest/no safe queen life and to my eye is wonderful
