    Why does it do that?

    I have a Tiger Concept Black Bay homage, and it uses the DG2813 movement. Whenever I flick my wrist or there's any sharp movement of the watch, the second hand stops for a second or two, then continues. I had another watch with a DG2813, which would do this too. Anyone know why it does that?

    Don't flick your wrist in such an unnecessary motion then......

    I kinda figured, but sometimes I may sharply move my wrist during the day for whatever reason, and if the stopping of the second hand is harming the movement, I'd like like to see what can be done to fix it.

    Switch hands when you feel the urge to flick a wrist.

    What is a DG movement?

    I just did a little research and from what I read (google this movement and you'll find some info) this movement suffers from seconds hand stutter due to the fact the seconds hand is not direct drive, as would be more common an ETA movement. What you describe seems to be pretty normal for this movement. Other's report that with abrupt movement, the seconds hand stutters, then plays catch-up. Aside from you modifying the movement, it seems it's something you'll have to live with. The good news is it does not appear to effect accuracy or the longevity of the movement itself.

    Re: Why does it do that?

    How is that watch working out for you? I bought one about a year and a half ago and it was horrible. No water resistance, dial would move inside the case when I adjusted the time, then finally the stem snapped off. It wasn't cheap either... Oh, and it had no lume at all. I was so frustrated because I loved the look and feel of it, but mine just turned out to be absolute garbage. I am just curious if I recieved a dud, or if yours is similiar crappy quality. I hope you don't take offense, I was just VERY disappointed with mine.

    Wow, this is interesting. I wish I could picture exactly how that works. In any case, it's something different about the movement that makes owning it unique. As long as it doesn't effect accuracy, it's no big deal.

    Correct. Many Miyota's are also like that. Timezone has a nice article describing different center second mechanisms. Stutter issue is purely cosmetic, does not harm the movement in any way, does not affect accuracy either.

    I think you may have received a bad one because mine's been perfect aside from the stutter. I bought two actually, and only one suffers from the stutter. The water resistance is good for both, I've showered and splashed around a bit in the pool with both of them, the adjusting of the time is solid and the hands move nicely, the lume on mine is actually decent, it glows very brightly for about 10 minutes then fades to a nice dull glow that'll last a few hours with about a five minute charge. For $109 I'd take the risk and try them out again, because mine's been performing very well so far. As far as I know, the quality you get is based on who you buy them from as I believe these are kit watches, and actually assembled by the sellers. If you're curious, I bought mine from onlinestorehk, don't know if that's who you used, but they're pretty good and I recommend them.
