For it has emerged that our secret agents really are kitted out for high society when posted overseas, in much the same way as Ian Fleming dressed 007.
Agents have been given expensive watches so that they can pose as high-earning diplomats or businessmen to mix at exclusive parties.

The luxury watches include a Raymond Weil Tango, which would normally retail for about £1,000.
