An unknown tube, help needed please

Dear members,

I am trying to figure out what this tube is for. Removed from its NOS packaging a few days back, for my BC. I noticed the tube is taller and it looks to have a groove for an external washer. Most importantly, it won't take a Brevet crown.

Any ideas what crown goes with this please? Thanks in advance, h

for my Panerai 6154 they had a devil of a job matching it up as there are ( contrary to popular belief) about 7-8 variants of the 8mm brevet BC ...and they had to rummage through all until they sorted it and found the correct one....most of which they still have.

and charged me a right royal less than 10gbp for the privilege.
