Inspired by the opening lines of John Kennedy Toole’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces, the Rue Canal is a vintage-style watch inspired by mid-century New Orleans. And like the famous novel, it is a loving homage to the magic and soul of the city. Rue Canal is a vintage-style watch that pays homage to New Orleans old and new and is a celebration of the magic she has inspired in so many.
Rue Canal features three distinct dial colorways: cream evoking a warm summer’s day in New Orleans, night blue representing the city after dark, and streetcar green inspired by New Orleans’ famous green and red streetcars.
“In the shadow under the green visor of the cap Ignatius J. Reilly’s supercilious blue and yellow eyes looked down upon the other people waiting under the clock at the D. H. Holmes department store, studying the crowd of people for signs of bad taste and dress.”
