I like to watch cogs turn just as well. I can't afford a Panerai, but I have an Omega that my grandad, who was a watchmaker, gave to me, saying "this is the best watch that money will ever buy you" 47 years ago. I have a couple of English mechanical watches too -- I'm not too fond of things that run on batteries if it can be avoided (which includes rifles).
Sorry to hear about your misfortunes. I hope you enjoy shooting as much as I do. It would make your head explode umphteen times over with joy if you do. My head is in smithereens every time I hear the sound of a Knockover fall between the trees.
May the Force be with you.
