Fashion: Shock and awe

What do you buy the gadget geek who has everything? Why, an all-singing, all-dancing aviation watch, of course. G-Shock's premium range includes easily changed timezone settings and solar-powered atomic timekeeping for extra precision, all encased in the brand's popular chunky design. Of course, it's also perfect even if he isn't James Bond. £500, G-Shock, casio-intl.com

Face to watch: Jamie Blackley

A feel-good comedy about washed-up punk-rockers starring Keith Allen and Phil Daniels might not sound promising, but take our word for it: this 21-year-old is not the only great thing about Sara Sugarman's Vinyl (opens March 2013)

Lexpionage: Cuvée day, n.

The day after the Christmas office party, when one member of the team will inevitably call in to take a day off because they are 'ill' – ie they drank just a little too much for just a little too long the previous evening

Social networking: Match the tweet to the star
