This is an odd duck. A company called Morpheus Watches has just released the Culinary watch, a $400 quartz piece with 41.5mm case and design cues that come from high-end cookwear.
. The Culinary features a concentric circle texture on the dial, calling out the same relief found in fine cookware. The shape of the case itself resembles a skillet, and the crown and pushers are formed in the style of high end oven or cook top knobs.
Fair enough. It uses a Swiss ISA movement and has an alarm for timing dishes, reserve de marche battery meter, and luminous hands. It comes on leather or steel and has a sapphire crystal.
I’ve always said that watchmakers need to target famous chefs. After all, when they’re on TV their wrists are always showing. A lost Rolex in the pudding might even make for a great gift for a lucky diner.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
