Try to reset the watch.But first be sure that you capable of doing this.
Reseting the watch procedure:
1)Remove the back cover.Be sure that you have the appropriate screwdriver.Keep the 4 screws safe, not to loose them.
2)On the chassis of the watch (metallic surface) somewhere there is a hole with AC (All Clear) written nearby.
3)Use one little thin retracted paper clip (not totally retracted).Insert the retracted end of the clip into the hole, gently, until it touches the end and with the upper part of the clip contact the chassis (metallic surface). Wait for 1-2 sec and remove the clip gently.The watch is now reset.All functions have been set to factory settings.
4)Put back in place and with caution the back cover, respecting right (up-down) positioning and taking care that the O-ring gasket is well in place,first.
5)Holding in place with one finger the back cover,screw back screws gently and without applying excessive force (delicate job) until you meet resistance, in the following order:
Up-right,down-left,up-left,down-right.
After setting the time/day/date etc try to calibrate compass both ways as you did before.
I hope this will solve your problem.
NOTE:Again,be absolutely sure that you are capable of doing this.
It is a bit delicate job.If not,you better bring the watch to an official CASIO service center.

with this model you simply wind the crown without pulling it out. Wind approx. 20 times and see how you get on.

Do not think so. But try another battery and see what the result is - you might get lucky. If it continues to do the same you will have to accept the obvious - something is bogus with the unit.

Dual batteries should be installed [+ to -][+ to -]. There may be a hard-to-read diagram that shows installation. You may have to take the watch to a jeweler to get things straightened out.

A "dollar store" set of miniature screwdrivers will have what you need, although I often find the only one that fits is the smallest.

Hello Tom Bott,

The Mondaines I have seen a big, bold,
beautiful watches...
Sorry...!!

If it is INDEED NEW... ("The other week")..

I would take it IMMEDIATELY back & get another.

Day-Date watches can INDEED be damaged by
moving the DAY/DATE inside specific times
around midnight...

Most watches
can handle the ABUSE but some
cannot... (keep in mind it could actually be defective).

The watch will not heal itself... and unless you failed to put the stem/winder all the way home... SOMETHING is tragically WRONG with your watch.

My BEST ADVICE... exchange it (now).

the strap is normally not "cloth", it should be thin gold bracelet type.
most of them i've seen are from around 1912-1930.
yours maybe similar to the one below, but it's difficult without seeing the watch.

Take it to a jeweller and they will tell you free of charge. They can tell as soon as they take the back off.

There are resources in the main link to help you, but removing the back and having an expert look is the only way. China is making lots, but they have a cheap Chinese watch movement inside them.

It can be quite difficult to tell fake Cartier watches from genuine Cartier watches, but there are a few guidelines you can follow:
Inscription The simplest way to tell a fake Cartier watch is to remove the caseback. A genuine Cartier watch will have "Cartier" inscribed on the movement.
Weight Like most luxury accessories, genuine Cartier watches are quite heavy, especially when compared to the lightweight fakes. This solid weight is due to the watch's quality materials.
Glass A genuine Cartier watch has scratch-proof glass, which won't be found on the fakes. This is something that's fairly easy to test. The sapphire-quality glass of a genuine Cartier is also non-smear, so if you drop a few beads of water on it, they will roll off. On fake Cartiers it will smear.
Cabochon stone The winder of a genuine Cartier watch features a polished gemstone, called a cabochon stone. If there's no stone, it's a fake Cartier watch. The gem should be securely fastened, not glued on.
Serial Number This should appear on the back or side of a genuine Cartier. The number will be engraved as a number of fake Cartiers feature a serial number that's barely etched onto the watch.

Two sec jumps is low power in the elec store,,, winds with movement back and forth as your arm would swing. Sometime the day date function is changed by pressing the small button type crown in slightly with your finger nail.it may have on or two detents if so it adjusts both functions. if not the stemcrown needs to be used to set day and button to set date.

Use the S button on the lower right to cycle through the minute, hour, date, month, and day of the week, and use the D button on the upper right to change those things. Push the M button one more time to get back to normal operation. To set the alarm: Setting the alarm is the same as setting the watch.
