Push-in crown in Luminox, are they really water proof?

I'm getting the idea of a Luminox but I'm concerned the crown is a push-type rather than a screw-type kind of crown, so I wonder how water proof that kind of crown can really be..
I swim, bath kids, tend to wash my hands too often, etc..

I simply don't want to waste $350 in something that will let water in when I swim or shower.

I see their Marketing say something about Navy personnel and some other hype that I don't buy as they all say the same story...

It is the crown gaskets that make the WR. Most of the Seiko 5s with 100M WR are not screw down either. Two o-rings on the crown is 1 more than what the 300M marine master has.
