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
