Those familar with Santonis, do you know how the width corresponds to US sizing? I generally wear between a 7.5 and an 8. The deciding factor is usually the width as I usually find narrower shoes uncomfortable because they tend to bind at the small toe. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

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.

It's even worse when you're speculating with a salesperson about how it will fit. With bespoke you're shopping for a suit creating device rather than the suit itself. They're much harder to evaluate, so most of us go with a...
Here's my thought on bespoke vs. top line RTW. I certainly would prefer going bespoke, but for many, a RTW suit is finished. You can see the final product, including the silhouette and know right off the bat, know whether you like the suit or not. With bespoke, you aren't going to know until it's finished. Now if you go with the house style, then that probably won't be an issue, but if you prefer a different silhouette or cut, unless you know for a fact that the...
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...
