    BUYING A LUMINOX COLORMARK SEAL WATCH BUT..... NEED HELP DETERMINING IF I AM BUYING A FAKE WATCH????

    So i am looking to purchase a luminox colormark seal watch in one of the following colors:
    - all black
    - green
    - blue
    - orange

    and i am looking at either jomashop or world of watches for the purchase as they have a pretty good sale on these watches at the moment.

    however, i looked at the blue watch yesterday at tourneau and it was a darker blue color as opposed to the world of watches website which indicates a light sky blue type color. they have the same style number and the actual luminox website indicates the watch as having a dark blue color to it.

    Luminox 3053 Watches,Men's Black Dial Black Silicone, Casual Luminox Quartz Watches

    Luminox Evo Navy Seal Mens Watch 3053 - Newegg.com

    the second website gives you an idea of the dark blue color.

    so i am basically trying to figure out:

    A) what color to get ( i was originally leaning towards the blackout model but i know 3 people who already have it; yet it is the most versatile color)
    B) what is going on with these color variations? did luminox release different color blues different years or is the watch from WOW fake or......

    any thoughts comments insights are appreciated.

    cheers.

    World of watches and Jomashop are both reasonably reputable sellers, and I doubt there are many fake Luminoxes out there, so you don't have to worry about it being a fake watch. WoW seems to have lots of CS complaints though, so I'd shop elsewhere.

    They could have changed the color between years, or it could be just a combination of different lighting conditions and poor photoshop/color correction that makes them look different. If you look at the 4th and 5th picture in the newegg add, it also has the same color as the world of watches picture. In reality, I would expect the actual color to be somewhere in between the two, though maybe more on the lighter side.

    If you google image search Luminox 3053, the pictures run the whole gamut on there. Hard to tell what it will actually look like.

    Edit: Don't get a blackout watch; they're too hard to read.

    Why the heck would anyone make a imitation luminox? Does not seem like a big enough market for it.
    Time is relative.
