The photo above is from the 1976 movie, All The President's Men, a political thriller about Watergate and the downfall of President Richard Nixon, in which Robert Redford portrayed Bob Woodward of the Washington Post. (Redford's co-star, Dustin Hoffman, played Carl Bernstein.)
Perhaps the pulled out crown was a symbol of how busy Woodward and Bernstein were, that because of frenetic pace of the Watergate investigation Woodward didn't even have time to screw in his Submariner's crown. Perhaps. It's more likely this was just a case of watch malpractice.
