Question about Watches
I recently purchased the Invicta Model 2876 watch. Once I had the watch adjust, I began to wear it. The second hand on the watch seems to have some sticking action between the 2 and 3. The hand will freeze, then move backwards, then forwards. This action will happen a few times a revolution. The watch actually loses a significant amount of time, at least 10 mins an hour. Any suggestions would help, thanks

This is most likely the "battery change indicated" feature of your watch. Change the battery, and see if the problem goes away. If it does not, then it could be a problem with the stepper motor, which will require a watchmaker. Of course all of this is dependent on the assumption that your watch has a quartz movement. If it is an automatic, or mechanical you have bigger problems.

There can be hundereds of causes why your watch isn't working properly, so, I'll not name them.
One is clear- without help of skilled watchmaker your watch will NEVER work properly.
NOTE: It may sound very strange, but mechanical watches do NOT like to be left without job.
Next time you decide to leave mechanical watch aside for long time- do not forget to wind it up once in a 2-3 days even if you are not wearing it.
This will help to prolong watch movements life and keep timekeeping steady and accurate.

You have tiny dirt particles in gear train or one of the gear wheel teeth is damaged. As a result of this the seconds hand is behaving erraticly when the damaged point on wheel reach the junction point with another gear wheel.
There is nothing you can do yourself. Find the nearest watchmsker and ask to overhaul your watch.

I think Its required Recharging capacitor
Put your watch under lamp light for 12 hours I hope that will solve the issue if not then capacitor need to be replace or watch need cleaning
