Only from a fashion standpoint, there is a pretty huge subculture of watch geeks into the inner workings and looks called horologists. Something about having a nice automatic or mechanical watch is intriguing to a lot of folks. Have you seen an auto/mechanical watch with a transparent caseback or know that most if not all of them operate with actual jewels (typically rubies) in the high friction areas to reduce wear on the metal? The intricacies are pretty mind-blowing honestly. From an engineering standpoint common movements and quartz type watches (which make up roughly 90% of the "fashion" market) are simply boring.
