Longines W.W.W. update

I have found more about this particular watch. It will be issued in October 2009. There will be 2 models;

L2.731.4.53.2 issued with black strap
L2.731.4.53.3 issued with brown strap (alligator?)

The watches will be under the Sports Legend Collection. I hope that this watch will also come in a big box and maybe a book as well, just like other models in this collection.

Basic specification:
Case: stainless steel, diameter 38.5 mm, lug width 20 mm
Case back: screw-down
Movement: Longines Calibre 615
Water resistance: 3 ATM
Crystal: sapphire

Calibre 615 is based on the ETA 2895/2. As such it should have the following specifications:
Automatic, sub seconds, hacking
Date, quick set
11.5 ligne, diameter 25.6 mm, height 4.35 mm
21 jewels, 28,800 A/h, power reserve 42 hours

Retail price: expected to be below USD 2,000.
