Question about Chaika Watches
It's a pendant watch from the soviet era. I wound it this morning, it started ticking, then when I set the time it stopped. I gave it a tiny wind to see if that would start it again but no luck. I don't know if I over wound it or what. Any help would be appreciated!

Omega claim that your watch will run for 40 or more hours, so stopping overnight should not happen. I doubt if you need to be particularly active to wind up the watch, otherwise this would make the problem quite common. My one experience of owning an automatic did not raise this sort of problem.
Discuss your problem with your supplier and describe your use. As you correctly say, having to hand wind i defeats the point of buying an autoamtic. (It could be that you have been sold two duff watches, however unlikely this may seem, it could happen).

If your watch is "automatic" then would I be right in thinking you took it off for a few days and it stopped?
If this is the case (since most of the Carrera range are automatic, then the spring will have run down and needs re-winding.
You were correct in thinking that shaking it will re- start it but to keep it going you need to shake it gently from side to side for some time. (One supplier quoted 500 times!) be patient and keep wearing it.

It looks like your watch has mechanical issue. Without inspecting the watch it's hard to say what exactly the problem is and I suggest you return it for replacement under warranty.

These clock do need oiling every couple of years and should be cleaned at least every 10 years.
One of the winding holes is for the time, one is for the strike and the 3rd is for the chime. These do vary in location from clock to clock so I can't advise any further. It sounds like this clock has 2 differenct chimes depicted by the SIE & EIV7.
I think your best option is to take it to a clock shop and get it cleaned. They should then be able to give you more information on the chimes and its operation.
