Question about Bulova Millennia With Vibra-Alarm 98A48 Wrist Watch
Watches, well most quartz anyway, are programmed to alert it's wearer to the fact that the battery in the watch is growing weak and needs to be replaced. There are watches that use a 2 second split and then there are those, like my Bucherer quartz that hops at 5 second intervals. Remember, just because you put a "new in the package" battery in your watch does not guarantee that it is new by way of battery power. Some batteries go completely dead while sitting on shelves waiting to be sold. For those of you that don't know, take it from a man of experience, never... ever... ever... store loose change and opened, new or used, coin or watch batteries in the same junk drawer. They will combine chemically to cook off the battery cells like a .22 rounds and pieces can fly pretty fast. Have a great day!

SOURCE: skipping second hand
i have this problem too... it's for my gucci 5500M. i haven't tried replacing the battery, but i remember the second hand getting this problem when i had to change the time. i wonder if a small gear broke inside the watch, but the weird thing is that the time still stays on time.

It seems as though it needs some attention, i.e. serving might be needed.
If servicing proves to be unsuccessful in improving performance, then it should be sent to their service center (see Boluva.com).

Pull out the winding stem (crown) when second hand reaches 12 o'clock, set main time by ajusting stem, next press and hold A button "near 9 o'clock" hands will move quickly, when close to matching main time, release A button and press in and out quickly until it matches main time. Next push winding stem in, this will start the main and the sub-hands together for normal time. To set alarm press and hold A button until set time is reached, select B button alarm mode "2 o'clock" for beep or vibra, to turn alarm on/off press C button "4 o'clock" for 1 or 2 seconds, the sub hands will move rapidly until it reaches normal time and alarm will sound 3 times indicating it is set, finally when alarm goes off early in the morning for example you can press any button to stop. To reset alarm press C and it will go back to the original alarm setting.
I have a spare set of instructions if required.
