James R. Cowan“One should eitherCINEMA be a work of art, or wear a work of art.” - Oscar Wilde

The company is named in honor of a Greek god of dreams, Morpheus. James R. Cowan, the company's president and watch conceptualist, began making first drafts of watches in 2008.

Cowan is also a screen writer and has had several projects in development in Hollywood. He has closely with film designer Wayne Barlowe (Avatar) and Oscar winning film and industrial designer H.R. Giger (Alien).
Culinary WatchCowan noticed: “I think my experience in designing very limited, leather bound art books for some of our great painters and designers, has given me a foundation in design and meticulousness (as well as perseverance) that has held me in good stead for the process of watch design and fabrication. It can be a long and challenging process, particularly as our timepieces are unique design that are fully custom made. However, my design associate Paul Mendoza and I absolutely love what we do. The essential goal of Morpheus is to create exceptional, fine watches that display the wearer's passion, whether it be cooking, art, military history, or anything else.”
Models of wristwatches from the Culinary Watch line are especially created for chief cooks and ardent admires of cuisine. The crown and the buttons have a form of handles of an oven. The case and curved sapphire glass together resemble a form of a frying pan. Concentric circles on the dial resemble a nonstick surface. The model is equipped with the quartz Swiss-made movement complicated with an alarm, the second time zone and a battery power indicator. The line is strictly numbered and its design is unique.
The inspiration source for the Passagen watch was the seriesPassagen of pictures, based on the subject of industrial equipment, made by the famous artist-surrealist H.R. Giger. This watch reflects the artist's passion to the industrial design, absorbing journeys through tunnels and crossings into fairy or nightmarish states. For the company it was important to feel deeply spirit and vision of the modern world seen by indeed this amazing artist.
The Passagen watch is made to order only. Such complex techniques as moulding, milling, pressing under pressure and manual finishing are applied to make the stainless steel. All the twelve screws on the face are secured by hand. The case has two variants: it is coated either with PVD coating or with 5 micron gold.
