New Tag Aquareacer Automatic wont start with manual winding, after it stopped. Although gently shaking it does kick it off for a while. Is the manual winding broken? I have followed the instruction as in the owners manual To wind - unscrew the crown to position '1' and wind (which I figured should be clockwise since it gives some resistance in that direction).

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.
An automatic watch needs to be worn, wound daily or placed on a watch winder to keep it going. It is not like a quartz watch that has a battery and can keep going when not worn. A modern automatic watch will run for about 36 - 48 hours on a full wind.
A quartz watch that stops like you describe is in need of a cleaning by a professional watchmaker. When this stopping occurs it is an indication the oils have dried out and the warmth from your body heats them so they are semi liquid again and the watch runs. but when the watch cools again the oils harden and the watch stops.

until it begins to feel just slightly taunt,Do NOT over wind a wind-up wrist watch, if its a self winding you should just have to walk in it to wind it. here is a link to a pdf of your manual which has winding procedures, Good luck Jon click here
