    I reckon you will almost definitely be ok there is secondary waterproofing on the stem which should handle a shower. if you are really worried then move it from a warm place to a cold place and see if any misting occurs on the inside of the crystal. If not you can relax!

    Your watch will be OK, don´t worry about it. The crown has to be tighten to keep it WR, when you go diving. If it was pushed you´ll have no problem.
    Every Omega diving watch is WR to at least 30m, even with the crown completly unscrewed.

    I've heard of this happening before, think it should be alright, put your watch into the fridge for 15s and see what happens, not too long as you'll find it fogs very quickly on the outside if it's too cold.

    Hey El Presidente, I did the same thing with my AT. I took it to my watch-maker the next day and he checked it and said it was fine. There are rubber gaskets within the crown and inside the case-tube. If the crown is unscrewed, there is still enough resistance from these two gaskets to prevent water from getting into the watch if you wear it in the shower.
    You got nothing to worry about.
