Question about The Watches
Barrel pin popped out to adust hour hand, and now will not fully push back in to restart the clock...not happened before.
Mondaine is a quality Swiss manufacturer of watches, so they will use decent quality mechanisms/movements. You don't say if it is a quartz or a mechanical movement.
I assume by 'barrel pin' you are referring to the crown. Check that the crown is not a screw-down one. Try turning the crown slightly before trying to press it back.
It's possible that there is a fault with the 'latch' that holds the crown and stem in place. Do not attempt to force the crown back in!
If gentle persuasion fails to get the crown back in, I'd suggest a trip to your preferred watch repair centre.

I have a Surface Watch. Not sure if it's the same model number, but the button set up is the same. Here's what I did:
Hold down the bottom right button. While you're holding it down, press the top right button. My bottom right button doesn't seem to always work, so it made it rather difficult to figure out what has going on.

mcdevito75 here, Generally your Cartier watch is wound in a clockwise direction simply, due to how it:s made, in this direction the mainspring is tightened or wound and turning the crown in a counter-clockwise position only free wheels the winding mechanism. I would advise you wind your watch in a multi direction, however not to the very, very end of It"s winding capacity, once you feel the crown getting tension only 4--5 more multi-direction turns should be enough to maintain a good wind to your Cartier watch.

These basic instructions are for most digital watches (and these are for regular to military but you can just follow same instructions to get to oposite) Hope this helps!
