I would put Zegna ties in the High End. I have a Zegna 7-fold and I think it is better than the Kiton 7-fold ties.
If you are relatively new to Swiss watches, I would recommend reading some of the dedicated watch forums. There is a lot of information out there. A good swiss watch can last many decades if you take good care of it and get it serviced regularly. Note that getting one of these watches serviced is not cheap so keep that it mind. I don't think there is a reason to buy it from Switzerland unless you want to get a new watch model before it arrives in the US or you want...
Get an open weave fabric, like the JJ Minnis Fresco.

If you live close to a BB retail store, I would recommend stopping by and trying on the Fitzgerald, Regent and Madison in your size and see how they fit. They often have 1818 suits on sale for 2 for $1499 and often can get 30% off of that during friends & family promotions. Once in a blue moon, they will have a 50% off sale which is probably the best you are going to get and better if you can add a coupon on top of it. If you only want to get 1818 suits, I wouldn't...
Interesting they have wool pants made in China and Thailand. I thought BB contracted with a new factory in the US to make their pants, but perhaps that was just rumors. I have been pretty happy with my "Made in Canada" gabs.
