 It really reminds me of a special edition Casio G-Shock - the colour, the shape of the case, the large screws/hex nuts.  Now, G-Shocks are great watches. My ten-year-old son has one and if you're hiking, swimming or riding a bike, they're (quite literally) hard to beat. But I wouldn't pay $19 000 for one, or for a watch that looked like one.
 As Cal Dreamer suggested, try Marks & Spencer.  Alternatively, I know that TM Lewin used to sell self-tie bow ties and, even better, they used to be "sized" (ie available in different neck sizes) so that you could wear them with wing collar without the length adjuster showing. Definitely worth checking out one of their shops (of which there are quite a few in the UK, of course) or their website.
 I don't think that people are saying, "Don't wear a flannel suit to an interview".  Instead, they are saying, "Don't wear a flannel suit to an interview in the middle of summer". 
   I agree with Mimo that Tag Heuer is generally (with a couple of exceptions) a more "entry level" watch brand in LVMH's stable, whereas Zenith is regarded as being on a higher tier and is generally more expensive as a consequence.  Interestingly, though, vintage Heuers seem to be valued considerably more highly than vintage Zenith watches. There are no doubt some exceptions but you can pick up vintage Zenith pretty cheaply, whereas most "classic" Heuer models (Carrera,...
LA Confidential is a great movie. I haven't watched it for years - I should make sure that I do. 
 Well, this is Styleforum, where people have custom-made Burmese teak cabinets to store their collection of handmade shoes...
 I don't know if I'm a #menswear gent, but I wear a panama hat in summer.  I've also got a similar, but more casual, hat that's made from woven paper that I got in Japan a few years back. It's crushable and rollable, so you can easily pack it into a bag and then just jam it on to your head and it regains its shape.  If you're not keen on panama hats, then I'm not sure what else you can wear. Flat caps or newsboy caps generally look odd with a suit or odd jacket and...
^ Too asymmetrical - needs a couple of ticket pockets on the other side to balance it out.
 I'm impressed that they managed to salvage the trousers - I would have thought that the rear pockets would have been too close together once the waistband and seat had been taken in by that much.  Also, of course, it would be easier to do such an alteration on plain cloth - if the cloth is in a check or plaid pattern, taking it in by a large amount could potentially make it difficult to maintain the pattern-matching. 
 Tend to agree with this - it would most likely require a lot of adjustment to jacket and trousers if you've lost 17kg (depending on how heavy you were originally, I suppose) and it might not be possible to get a good result.  As CD says, get an opinion from a good tailor, but be prepared to be told that you might have to start afresh.
