I had two Seamaster 8800s (different colors) at the same time and I noticed that on one of them, the lume in pearl pip was slightly "weaker" than the other when both were given equal light. Maybe it wasn't weaker and it's possible that the other one just had an extraordinary strong lume on the pearl pip on the bezel. I did notice that both had equal lume on the dials, however. I attached a photo of the lume of the pearl pip that is the "weaker" one for reference. This photo was taken seconds after a full charge. The other Seamaster pearl pip had an even brighter lume, but not my much.
Does Omega quality control of new watches cover testing the luminescent properties of the watch? If so, do they allow some variance in the lume between two of the same types of watches?
Appreciate any input.
