Question about Watches
I was winding my manual wind Tissot seastar chrono as normal when I felt a click through the crown and then the watch would not wind. feels like when winding the main spring via the crown I wind the crown forward but when let go to continue winding the crown it spins/springs round in the opposite direction ?

A self winding watch will run for 2-3 days if it is not worn (they thrive on being used) and it sounds as if you have not been using it; is this the case?
It could be that the winder does not operate on the spring (some watches don't), so to wind it up you need to activate the self winding mechanism.
You can do this by gently swinging the watch from side to side for a few minutes. This will simulate the normal operation when it is being worn.
If you continue to have trouble with it stopping, it could be that it needs cleaning. I had a similar problem with a watch I had some years ago.

I would not wind the watch manually. I also have a Tissot. If you cannot wear it often enough to keep it going, you can purchase a watch box that is made for self-winding watches which will turn the watch periodically in order to keep it wound.

There are three positions for the Carrera's push-down crown. The inner position is used for normal wear and winding. To wind the crown manually, simply rotate it clockwise.
Changing the date on the Carrera is done from the middle crown position. Turn the crown clockwise to advance the date, one day at a time. Push the crown back to the inner position when finished.
The outer crown position is used for setting the time. You can turn the crown in this position either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Adjust the time forward or backwards. Setting the time backwards will not damage the watch. When the time is correct, press the crown all the way into the inner position.
