The BR 03-92 GIGN Limited Edition was introduced in 2008 especially for the members of National Gendarmerie Intervention Group (GIGN) specialize in combating terrorism and organized crime. In France and abroad, the GIGN’s « Super Cops » confront extremely dangerous situations. The missions they are sent on require total commitment and special training. United and experienced, they are the National Gendarmerie’s elite unit and are at the forefront of international high-risk operations. Having decided to create a watch bearing their insignia and embodying their values of cohesion and professionalism, the GIGN naturally approached Bell & Ross to produce this special edition.
• The circle represents the cohesion of the operational unit and its ability to tackle every aspect of a crisis situation.
• The crosshair symbolizes the primary discipline practiced by members of the GIGN: shooting accurately and effectively.
• The parachute, which is inside the circle, represents the GIGN’s membership in the military family of airborne troops.
• The blue of the emblem’s background is a subtle reminder of the unit’s skill and ability underwater.
• The carabiner represents the elite unit’s skill in various highrisk climbing techniques including the hazardous practice of rappelling.
• The two stars between the words « Gendarmerie » and « Nationale » symbolize the « second generation » GIGN after the 2007 reforms.
