Manual for Carrera Re-Edition

Does anyone have a copy of the manual for the 1964 Carrera Re-edition. I bought this watch today and in the box was the manual for the Calibre 17. This is my first chronograph and after reading a lot of the posts in here, I'm amazed at the history behind this watch. I've asked the retailers to contact TAG-Heuer regarding a manual but I was wondering if someone could help me out.

Forgive the simple question but do I require to hand wind this watch? If so, how often do I do this? Also when I'm winding the crown, I experience a slight ratchet movement - is this normal or does this signify that the watch is fully wound?
