Hey,

I have Miyota watch, but not Laco, but nothing as you describe.

I would imagine it stop a "beat" as you mentioned? either its faulty or i imagine it wrong. Best you show us a video on wha you meant.
2 handful of Stowas, 4 Makara and 4 HMT...

Which model of Laco you are referring to? My Valencia is running fine so far though.

I bought a Laco Flieger with Miyota Movement as a gift. I think I have noticed this occurrence before, might be Miyota movement common issue...

Yes 44mm diameter watch. I checked online apparently it is a common problem with certain Miyota engine. However it is not a nice sight to see it skip a beat whenever i swing my arm a little harder.

It's all about the angular momentum and weight of the hands. Bigger watches tend to have longer hands (hence weight) and the angular momentum amplifies beyond the strength of certain miyota calibers.

Good info, long hand equals heavy weight in a way.
