I purchased a Uniform Wares 302 series watch in October 2012 - it's a really nice-looking watch, and I was pleased with it.
Within six months the loop came of the strap, within 12 months the second hand dropped off, within 18 months four more pieces had fallen off the dial.
Despite being in warranty I have been told that this is "accidental damage" and not covered - it will cost £127.
I'm really disappointed, and certainly can't recommend either their workmanship or their customer care.
I wonder if anyone else has similar, or better, tales?
