Just bought what seems to be a largely untouched and unworn triple six. Index on the dial are darker than the hands, and the pearl.

Generally I hear this is normal, and I am not worried about authenticity or correctness of the parts, my question is only: “ Has anyone a scientific or proven explanation to why the tritium parts gets darker diffently?

Kinds regards,
