LENOVO SCROLLPOINT MOUSE - USB. I have a few of them.
None of mine have ever broken or needed maintenance.

Not sure they're made any more, and the IBM logo on this:
https://www.exxactcorp.com/Lenovo-31P7405-E1272118
may be indicative, but I've been using mine for 20+ years with
great satisfaction. And there is no wheel noise to annoy me.

Note that mine has an actual middle button, and although
it's hard to see from the picture, the text implies this version
does too. It may well be the same.
