I’m no science buff... but no sun doesn’t automatically equate to no UV rays...

Have a gander at this:

Yeah like Lexkempo said it's been documented that the "automatic" lettering has been known to fade to white. There have been TB2 owners who witnessed it happening over time. A known phenomenon.

Why the sweep hand doesn't fade, likely differences in materials and color application method but that's just speculation. Really, not relevant.
