Luminova on my Rolex looks strange

The luminova on my Rolex is not equal, some zones are darker as if there were less Luminova.

Is it normal ?

How is the Luminova on your Rolex ?

After the dust, the luminova.

My life is a hell

I would say it's the ideal opportunity to install spot lighting on your wrist. You wouldn't need to rely on phosphorescence, and as a bonus people actually see what you're wearing even in the dark.

Rolexes are for nouveau riche.

Is it a knockoff?

Isn't there some more potent glowing-thingy that Rolex uses or is it just Luminova?

The luminova on my submariner is fairly uniform glow throughout, perhaps yours is just old? I know that they recommend getting it redone every several years

So, by "shining shoes" you mean "polishing knobs"?

The mind boggles. Codpieces haven't been making a comeback, have they?
