  5. Audemars Piguet
    A watchmaker since 1875, Audemars Piguet is best known for its AP Royal Oak series of watches. The equally popular Royal Oak Offshore series is one of the most sought after diver’s watches. Inspired by its slogan “To break the rules, you must first master them”, Audemars Piguet was the first to use stainless steel (a non-precious metal) in sports watches and to charge for it at a luxury pricing, it turned out to be a game-changer for them.
    The big paradigm shift here was that it allowed watchmakers, for the first time, to charge luxury prices for their craftsmanship rather than the precious metals used.
