For about a month, while the watch did keep time, the second hand only moved 4 seconds at a time. In other words, it would no move each second, just in 4 second intervals. Now it is not keeping time,...

Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life). This does not mean end of watch life, but end of battery life. Replace battery and watch will work as it should. Rate me, please.

The second hand sweeps every 4 to 5 seconds instead of second by second - is the battery dying??

I don't know how your particular watch operates but it is a common feature to change the second hand operation when the battery is running low. So the answer to your question is YES.

The movement on the second hand is jumping every 5 seconds instead of every second, however the time is still correct.

Many high end quartz watches have a feature called the EOL or end of life indicator. This causes the seconds hand to jump 2, 3 or 5 seconds depending on the make of watch when the battery life is low. The watch will continue to keep accurate time until the battery dies completely. So, when you see your seconds hand jumping multiple seconds it is time to get a battery.

My Tag Heuer's second hand sticks and jumps in 4 to 5 second increments

Has your display got a flashing display "BT" at the right hand side of the display? If it has, then it means that the battery needs replacing.

My Wittnauer is jumping every 5 seconds

Your watch is fitted with EOL feature and let you know about insufficient battery power by moving seconds hand by 2-5-second increments. You have about two weeks time to change the battery from the EOL engagement or your watch will start to malfunction or even stop. In this case you will have to reset your watch after battery replacement. EOL = End Of Life (relates to battery only). Jumping seconds hand means it's time to change battery.
Rate me, plz.

Second hand sweeping five second increments

Yes, it is sign for time to replace the battery. Your watch is fitted with EOL (end of life) device. This device forces the integrated circuit board to move seconds hand in 2 - 5 seconds increments when the battery power level is less than necessary for smooth running of the watch movement. At the same time the timekeeping of the watch is not affected and it will still keep good time for about 2 weeks.
Rate me, please.

Differentiating omega model 2561.80 and a model 2531.80

The only way to find out what model of Omega you actually own is to open it.  This should have been done by whoever you already brought it to.  Omega only prints their model #'s on the movement inside the watch.  If you open the watch, look on the movement, you'll know what model you own.
