PREORDER: Kickstarter: Bourbon Watch Company - Rue Canal Collection

Bourbon Watch Company, out of Louisiana, have launched their first Kickstater for their debut collection, the Rue Canal.
Their "Bayou Born, Swiss Made" marketing gets to be a bit much, but not nearly as much as their ambitious pricing.
I do like the looks of these and wish them well.


Day One pricing is $995
Kickstarter pricing is $1,045
Retail pricing will be $1,295

Estimated delivery is March 2023

An homage to New Orleans old and new, Rue Canal pairs vintage Swiss watch design with a twist of Louisiana soul. On the 800 block of Canal Street, just a few steps off Bourbon Street and perched above the head of the statue of Ignatius Reilly is the old DH Holmes department store clock. For decades, the clock served as something of a local New Orleans landmark but found its immortality in the opening lines of John Kennedy Toole’s celebrated New Orleans epic, A Confederacy of Dunces. Rue Canal’s flared syringe handset, crescent counterweight, and numeral design all took inspiration from the clock.

The Rue Canal is available in three colorways - Cream, Night, or Streetcar
