Two years ago, I dedicated the summer to renovating my garage. I was forced to. It was dilapidated almost to the point of collapse. For the paint, I chose the bright and cheerful Blissful Blue.

I love this color. So much so that I chose it again when repainting my kitchen walls. Then—in a textbook demonstration of compulsive obsessive behavior—I purchased a watch simply because the manufacturer picked the same color to accent the dial.

Is the use of Blissful Blue a good reason to buy a watch? Let’s take a close look at Morphic’s M63 Series timepiece and find out.

Description

At 78 grams (2.75 ounces), the M63 Series watch is unusually heavy for a quartz timepiece. This is because it’s Hattori PC32A movement is housed within a large and solid stainless-steel case. A generously sized crown allows adjustments to be performed with ease.

The watch’s bezel is engraved with indications to mark the passing minutes. Although some similarly designed bezels can be rotated, this one cannot.

This timepiece has a diameter of 44 millimeters and is 11 millimeters thick. It comes with a sunken, black colored dial featuring a date indicator at the three o’clock position. Indications and hands are painted light blue.

The Morphic M6301 is fitted with a 22-millimeter-wide, gray leather strap. This watch band is equipped with a stainless-steel buckle marked Morphic.

The Manufacturer

Although Morphic has been in operation since 2012, the company name was first trademarked in 2017 by Jeffrey, Inc. of West Bloomfield, Michigan. West Bloomfield is located within the metropolitan area of Detroit.

Their watches are designed in-house but assembled in China. This is not uncommon. Aside from a few companies in Switzerland, Germany, and Japan, most watches are manufactured in China.

As expected, Morphic watches are sold over e-commerce sites such as eBay and Amazon. However, unlike many of their competitors, Morphic-branded timepieces can also be purchased from retailers such as Sears and Walmart.

I emailed Morphic, requesting information on this timepiece. Their customer service department responded quickly and courteously.

Visual Appeal

For this timepiece, Morphic chose a black dial with light blue lettering. While an unusual choice, I find it highly effective. If you do not, there are several distinctive color choices available within Morphic’s M63 Series family.

The dial is protected by a solid, brushed stainless-steel case and surrounded by an immovable but attractively designed bezel.

The M6301’s gray leather strap with its stainless-steel buckle match the timepiece quite nicely.

Durability

The Morphic M63 Series watch is fitted with a Hattori PC32A. This is a low-end movement but works fairly well and should last for several years. The date indicator changes smoothly with a distinct click and time can be easily set.

A solid stainless-steel case houses the movement and is capped by a crystal composed of hardened mineral glass.

This watch is equipped with a decent quality leather strap.

Most of the timepieces I review are rated 3 ATM. The Morphic M6301, with its 5 ATM rating, can be worn while swimming.

Overall Impression

This offering from Morphic looks great on my wrist and I wear it quite often. However, although the Hattori PC32A works reasonably well, a timepiece in the two-hundred-dollar range should be fitted with a higher-grade movement.

Water resistance is an important selling point for some brands of watches. The following poll is meant to determine how significant this quality is to the average consumer.

When you purchase a watch, how much importance do you place on water resistance?
