GRIFFIN EMBLEM was founded in France in 2013 by Alain Recuze, the brand name came from the king of everything in Greek myth, a kind of mythical creatures which was combined by representative of land (lion) and representative of sky (hawk), its pattern was usually used in the medal of European royal and nobility and symbolized as the protector of hidden treasure and wealth. GRIFFIN EMBLEM is made up of two elements: the Griffin and the Treasure. We love the fact that griffins were not only perceived as heroes, but also as goal and protectors of gold. On the logo, you can see the griffin is touching a diamond. This diamond is a reference to the treasure the griffins were fighting for. The word “emblem” is a reference to the treasure. The brand concept of GRIFFIN EMBLEM insists on the principle of few quantity and high quality. They create a series of valuable limited edition mechanical watch by careful design, superior selection and artistic polish.
More than a watch, a piece of art.

The RGN001 is manufactured with 316L stainless steel. Its faceted 42mm case features a combination of polished and satin-brushed surfaces, emphasizing its geometric and resolutely contemporary case inspired by the first RG1053 collection first launched in the 2013. The angular, silhouette of the case is softened by the perfectly circular bezel that haloes above it.
The RGN001 is powered by the GE.M8-01 mechanical automatic movements, which is modified from one of the best Japanese automatic movements available: Miyota 82S0. This dependable movement has a reputation as a workhorse and has been a particular favorite of the Griffin Emblem design team for years. Not wanting the wearer to miss out on the beauty and the precision of the watch as it keeps time, their design accentuates windows in the face and caseback that allows you to be mesmerized by the movement in action.
The Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 is applied to the hands and index marking. It is a phosphorescent pigment, otherwise known as Lume, emits a Blue glow in the dark (as the name suggest) when properly charged by either sunlight or artificial light. In a daylight condition, BGW9 is white in colour. This technology offers up to ten times higher brightness than previous zinc sulfide–based materials.
Natural Ruby is used to be considered the most magnificent of all gems, and ancient people were even convinced that the value of ruby exceeded that of diamond. The ruby is just like the sun and it can keep shining despite its surroundings thanks to its glowing hues. Many ancient cultures have noted that ruby is the symbol of “passion, protection and prosperity”. Even nowadays, people still believe that ruby is associated with love and passion. Wearing it can be a great source of power for yourself. With so many positive attributes, it can be a good choice as a decoration for RGN001.
PREMIUM SKELETON DIAL
The centrepiece of the RGN001’s is its avant-garde skeleton dial. The multi-layered elements, different polish effects and three-dimensional metal accessories seamlessly blends the dial with the movement. In broad daylight, the faceted hands and applied markers appear as one with the complex of the open dial and visible portions of the movement, with their polished surfaces gleaming through the darkness for surprisingly easy legibility. In darkness, they emit a subtle blue glow from the Super-LumiNova® BGW9 coating.
