Generally you have to open the watch to see the movement but a lot of fakes are plain workmanship flaws.
A real Cartier will not be made from base metal. It will be made from stainless steel or precious metal.
A real Cartier will most likely be built with screws in the band instead of cotter pins.
When you pull the crown to set there will be no play in the set lever. In other words when you spin it, it will begin to turn the hand immediately and there will be a slight resistance. It will not feel loose.
As stated, the best way to tell is to look at the movement. Cartier uses a high grade Swiss movement most likely marked ETA.

A good way to find out would be to take your Nautica watch to a jeweler for a demonstration of how to remove the back without damage.

Unlikely to be a CR2032. They are HUGE, size of a quarter. I wrote this Tip.

Changing Watch Batteries
Lots of posters ask "what is the battery in my (name of watch)" with a view to changing it yourself. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You don't have the tools or knowledge to remove a rotary screw on back, or the gasket sealant for a waterproof watch. Some fashion watches have 4 traditional screw and need professional grade jeweler screwdrivers. Also, there are about 20 batteries commonly used in watches, in various sizes and internal technology, Lithium Ion, Silver Oxide and Manganese Alkaline. If you buy them, you generally have to buy 10!

Don't sweat the details. Just take the watch to your local jeweler. They have all the batteries at hand and the tools to remove the back. It is done whilst you wait for $8 to $15!

Without model, difficult to find directions using the internet.

Perhaps you could contact a retail store to see if they can assist.
