Rolex GMT Master 1675 Calibre 1560

the luminous compound is beyond repair, and will fall into the movement if not replaced

the dial with the old compound removed

proposed colour for luminous compound

new compound on dial

low amplitude - the hairspring is slightly deformed, and touches the spokes of the balance

the hairspring is deformed a bit - looks like a dish rather than a flat spiral

the hairspring is deformed upwards

to re-shape the hairspring, I bend the overcoil outwards

now I can pull the hairspring downwards to make it flat again

now I can bend the overcoil back, and the hairspring is back to where it should be

now I've got a decent amplitude, and a hairspring that doesn't touch the balance spokes any more
