Producing 36,000 timepieces a year, this brand is so perfect that even Tiffany & Co and Bulgari use their movements. It was dubbed the Royal Oak in 1972 and created the first oversized watch named the Royal Oak Offshore in 1993. Innovation being its trademark, this brand also had the world’s first steel luxury sports watch, the first jumping second hand, and the thinnest watch among others.
