On my new Victoronox 24332, the sweep hand for the stop watch does not reset to zero but rather to about 17 seconds past '12' O'clock. The split second hand also stops just past Zero on...

Follow the instructions on the following link. I believe it works on all or most Swiss quartz chronographs. Worked like a charm for my Mondaine and my Zodiac. Hope it works for you too.

How do you open back to change battery?

Swiss Army watches require a special tool. You will need to call your local jewelers and ask if they do Swiss Army watches as not every jeweler has the tool to do it.
Good luck

The second hand jumps forward every 5 seconds but the watch still keeps time OK.

You need to replace battery.
Q/A from swiss army website.
Q. How do I know when the battery needs changing?
A. In select models, the battery end-of-life indicator signals that the battery should be replaced within two or three days. When the battery is low, the second hand stands still for 2-4 seconds, and then speeds up to the correct time. This indication will last for approximately one week, and then the timepiece hands stand still.

Second hand slipping

What you need his a hand alignment.
On a high grade watch like an Omega you could be looking at anywhere between $40-$100 depending on the shop.
I would look for a shop that has a watch maker on staff and that is familiar with the Omega. This usually isnt hard to find but you also want to be sure that the watch can be resealed. They need to have a pressure test machine and be able to guarantee the watch has been resealed to manufacturer specifications.
You might be able to get a better deal by getting your standard service done at the same time.
Good luck my friend. Great watch!

Wenger watch second hand pauses and skips ahead 4 seconds, it's keeping time find. Seems to just have started.

That is a low battery indicator. It will do that until the battery is replaced or is dead. When it does that it means its time to change the battery.
