Patek Philippe introduced the "Calatrava" line in the early 1930's, during the beginning of the great depression. It was one of the most complicated watches in the world. The historical beginnings of the name went back to the middle ages, during the war with the moors when a Spanish religious order of monks successfully defended the citadel at Calatrava. At the end of the 19th century Patek Philippe adopted the Spanish Knight for its brand symbol. The Calatrava line signifies some of Patek's most extraordinary watches.
