I've noticed that the vast majority of double cuffs have the holes placed in the middle. In my opinion this conceals the cufflink when the jacket is worn. Turnbull & Asser seems to do the hole almost near the edge, about 75% versus the 50% of most shirts.
Armagnac can be quite interesting to mix with. Sort of like a rhum agricole.

Ironically the whole notion of Swiss watches being the top tier was a relatively recent invention. In fact, the success of Swiss watches was due to their mass manufacturing techniques.

The great English makers--Frodsham, Smith, Arnold--made some magnificent pocketwatches.
