    Seiko 6309 lume hands discoloured OVERNIGHT!!!!

    hi guys! not sure where to post this as i'm new, but I was just wondering if anyone could solve the mystery of the minute and hour hands on my seiko turning grey from white over the course of a couple of days ('overnight' was a bit of and exaggeration!) I researched it well I bought it and they were seemingly not replaced, the lume matching the dial and seconds hands in colour and texture. It's a bit frustrating as it was one of the cleanest examples i'd ever seen but only really bothered if it could be an issue with the seals (moisture getting in etc.), can it be fixed?? any help would be appreciated greatly! Thanks

    Moisture is all I can think of, but I can't imagine why it would only affect the hands and not the lume on the dial itself.

    Do you live in a very humid area?

    good point, i live in rainy UK but literally just went on holiday to Florida and that's when started, so that could be it.
