Omegamatic and Second Hand Movement

I just purchased an Omegamatic Quartz Seamaster(kinetic?) I just noticed the second hand flutters wherever i set the crown when adjusting the time. I have tried to reach someone at Omega about this, but can't get hold of anyone. I did go back to the dealer, and looked at the display and it does the same thing. Also, how do i go about winding watch - which direction do i turn crown? The watch has kept very good time, except i one nite i checked the time to our local time service and it was exact. I noticed the next evening before going to bed the time was of 2 sec. Reset, and now keeping excellent time. All i can think of is that i was real sick and slept for 1 1/2 days. Now, before going to bed i move wrist for several seconds to ensure sufficient energy in place. Does this make sense? Is my watch ok?
