Calatrava

Patek Philippe & Co. (PP) is a Swiss watch manufacturer founded in 1851, located in Geneva and the Vallée de Joux.  The brand is considered by many to be the best manufacturer of high-end watches in the world, and produce some of the most beautiful and complicated watches ever seen.

According to the company's legend, Patek (one of the founders) stumbled upon the secret of the Calatrava cross that, up until that time, had only been known to the popes. He discovered that in 1158, pope Gregory VIII, in a desperate attempt to fight off the Moors and save Christianity, had commissioned shepherds from the fields to fight as knights. They were known as the "Knights of the Calatrava". The pope took the name of an old moorish castle that had been liberated (the Calatrava castle) and placed it on four fleur-de-lis like anchors that united in the center and told the shepherds that the cross would bring them victory in battle against the superior forces of the moors.

Patek believed that if he harnessed the power of the four triads (Calatrava cross) he would find success in life, and immortality for his soul.
