Original “Long S & R” dial with tritium indexes. The present watch was made in the first half of the 1980s and the caseback is signed CRS, characterized by a new case maker for Speedmasters: C.-R. Spillmann et Cie (abbreviated C.R.S.), which produced cases for Speedmasters between 1981 and 1987. Since then, the year was no longer indicated inside the caseback. Models from the early 1980s, whose case was manufactured by C.R.S. are distinguished by a flatter lugs top than on the other versions.
