Nautilus 3700/001 lume on hands vs. dial

Anyone have a completely original 3700/001? If you charge up the lume with a flashlight, and go into a dark room, do you see a difference in how the hands and dial markers glow? I'm evaluating a watch and I'm curious to see what's normal here (I can't find examples on Google image search). Under a loupe, the hands and the dial markers have a different fill texture, which I've heard is common, but I'm curious if that would impact the glow intensity and consistency between the hands and the dial. Thanks.

Not experienced on 3700 but seen before on Aquanauts the different luminous material on hands and markers ,i thought it must be since they are from different batches ,also on my Daytona is a bit noticeble the difference if fully charged.Do you know when was it serviced last time?
