Based on the design of the Aquascope, the Highlands Sands Sport sheds the diver watch label, now being in the brand's new "Bressel" collection. The case is still 44.5mm wide in a sand-blasted steel. It has a GMT style rotating bezel, but this isn't a GMT watch. I love the looks of it, but there isn't much super new except for the colors and the strap. Inside the watch is JeanRichard's in-house made JR1000 automatic movement. People are used to paying a few hundred dollars for watches of this personality, but the Bressel Highlands Sand Sport will be around $6,000. This sort of forces it to be in the hands of the high-fashion elite who was a neat looking retro-military themed watch, but with an in-house made high-end Swiss movement. Though aside from the high price, it is a good looking piece I'd be happy to strap of from time to time.
