Go here: Chronocentric Omega Forum. Introduce yourself and ask for a dealer recommendation. You should be able to get a recommendation for an authorized dealer who'll give you anywhere from 25-35% off the retail price. No reason to pay the same price for a grey market watch.
The Peninsula obviously doesn't need any further details. It's one of the best known in the world. I also like the Intercontinental Hong Kong and the Island Shangri-La. Both are top notch in service and in accomodations. The latter is on Hong Kong side.
Picking a watch is a very subjective and personal matter. It depends on your tastes and your needs. Personally, the only Rolex I care for is a Sea-Dweller.

No one will ever out Bond Connery. Everyone else will always be an imitation. Having said that, I think Dalton and Craig got the physicaly menace part down pat but they both lack the suave quality needed for the Bond character. Moore. Too much of a jokester. After Live and Let Die, you couldn't really take him seriously. Lazenby. Absolutely miscast. He's not a bad actor but just wasn't right for the role. Brosnan. My second favorite, though he's not...
I save the quartz watches for the Casio G-shoks. To me quartz = no soul. But that's just me.
Another vote for solid red.
Like most of the others I do believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but ugly is ugly. Anyone who can look at Janet Reno and claim any form of attractiveness clearly lives in a different plane of existance.
