Question about Watches
A second hand that pulses but does not advance usually indicates one of two problems: (1) a weak battery that provides insufficient power to the tiny motor that advances the second hand; or (2) a bit of dust or grit somewhere in the watch's gear train that is jamming up the works.
Try testing or replacing the battery. If that doesn't work, some watchmakers can try to blow out (using very gentle air puffs, not cans of compressed air) the watch movement and/or put it on a special machine to try to unjam the gears. It is usually does not make economic sense to perform further repairs on a watch of this price range, though it is also possible to replace the entire movement.
