Longines Heritage 1969 in steel, $2,050, at Bachendorf's. SERGE GAINSBOURG It might not surprise you, but time wasn't all that important to me.

Just look at all those photographs! My cigarette and my Speedmaster: I made them famous. Jane has a dresser drawer in her bedroom full of my watches, and I am happy to see that she winds them regularly. Merci, beautiful. Baume & Mercier Classima in rose gold, $5,750, at Eiseman Jewels.
