In the 80's??? The crown also looks like a modern 703/704.

Mine has a "washed" [NO] Tritium service dial, with Lumi Hands and Insert, 703. Personally, I am fine with a serviced/over-serviced watch. I could care less about 'patina', 'flaking lume', and the subsequent 'worrying about value'. YMMV
Have you got a photo of your dial, its always good to compare them

To answer the insert question—you’re looking for a so-called “mk 3” Insert with these fonts:

That is how a red should look. None of this case restoration and general tidying up. Your watch is absolutely perfect.

Do you have any photos? Its actually not a bad situation, even though the dial doesn't match the watch. At the next service, pop the red service dial out and sell it. You will make enough money to buy an vintage white dial and if required matching handset.
