Sorry Robert but it is likely you will have to accept and get used to it. The movement's seconds hand is just not calibrated to the exactness the dial is printed in. Notice as your hand moves it sometimes lands on a marker and gradually stops lining up and then as it reaches another part of the dial it will start lining up again. However it never is consistent as to what markers it lines up with. Lots going on behind the scenes (in your movement) that is inherent in battery powered movements.
This is a symptom of what is usually several possible issues:
1) The most common is that the battery must be changed. Insist on Energizer batteries only (as they do not leak) and visit your local Certified Master Horologist for assistance in changing the battery and resetting the watch. 2) The movement must be serviced every 3-5 years by a qualified professional. Dust and debris can cause the symptom of stopping and starting the movement. If you have owned it for less time than this, remember that the watch may have been manufactured and in the retail location longer than this period of time before it was purchased. 3) The movement is defective or damaged. If the watch is under warranty, and it was purchased through an authorized dealer, Armani will take care of this issue for you at no charge.
To properly assess this issue, I recommend taking the first step, as a CMH also has the proper tools to test the movement and battery to determine the best next course of action.
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.
Your TAG is fitted with EOL (end of life) feature. This is the cause of
that 4 seconds interval movement of seconds hand and thus indicating
the time for battery replacement. The timekeeping is not affected by
this- it is just warning to replace battery a.s.a.p. Find your nearest watchmaker and ask for battery replacement.
