In the photo above, notice that the back of the case has scatterd corrosion spots due to age (around the groove indentation & underneath the crown)- these have been cleaned & treated to ensure that they don't go any further.
Case hardening or surface hardening is the process of hardening the surface of a metal by infusing elements into the material's surface, forming a thin layer of a harder alloy. This process is conventionally applied to firing pins, rifle bolt faces, engine camshafts & other items that are subject to high pressures & sharp impacts. TISSOT's innovativeness, introduced & applied surface hardening into its watches.

Movement is not shown with photos but guaranteed authentic! The case design of the TISSOT PR518 has an open-through-glass orientation. One has to pop the crystal, unscrew the crown & unhinge the dial to gain access to the movement, which is a delicate process that can only be entrusted to our technician.
