So I purchased a PAM 243 J series with T Dial a while ago and I immediately noticed that the luminence in the hands and the numbers 12 and 6 were slightly whiter/greener than the dot markers. The dot markers already has some patina and looks like more like a creamy white.
Can anyone explain why this is? Did Panerai use Tritium in the dot markers and Superluminova in the 12, 6 markers and the hands or is it that the patina is developing at different rates?
