The emblem of chivalry

The Calatrava Cross

The Calatrava cross has been the official emblem of the brand since 1887 and was engraved on the cases of many Patek Philippe pocket watches years earlier. As a devout Catholic Antoine Patek knew the meaning of the symbol: The cross is the emblem of the Knights of Calatrava. The Order of Knights was founded in 1158 from a Catholic monastic order after its members had saved the Spanish castle of Calatrava from the Arab invasion.

Inspiration on grey days

It's that time again. The persistent high fog has Vienna firmly in its grip. When I look out of the window, grey is the dominant tone. What is needed is a little horological cheer for the mind. And with that: Welcome to my absolute favourite feature of the current Timelounge homepage.
