Most quartz watches will tick 1 time a second (for practical reasons as if it goes any faster it will drain the battery). As for mechanical watches, it depends on the movement - it could roughly go from anywhere to 4 to 8 ticks a second.

If a wrist watch is moving on your wrist, it could mean that the watch strap is loose, causing the watch to shift around.
