One thing need to highlight is that this watch do have a Seamaster case back on it. According to John Deithelm of Omega Vintage Information, there was a small batch of Speedmaster chrono do equipped with a Seamaster case back before when it made.
"What is the background on the use of "Seamaster" cases on certain Speedmasters (most commonly Mark series, and c.1045 Speedmasters)? I assume it is because Omega considered these watches to be in water-resistant cases, but are these watches also considered part of the Seamaster line as well as the Speedmaster line?
Mr. Deithelm's reply:
* the case back of such watches are all showing the " seahorse " emblem, since all these watches were originally in the* SEAMASTER * line, although the official name of the Jubilee version is:
SEAMASTER - Speedmaster Professional 125 - chronograph
* it is only much later, when the " chronograph " vogue became so voluminous that we had to separate the sporty SEAMASTER watches from the " chronographs " and give them a separate line !

Hence, because the Speedmaster was considered part of the Seamaster line, they often sported Seamaster backs.
