I was talking to the Longines sales people today and was told that the Longines W.W.W. L2.7188.8.131.52 watch may not make it into Taiwan this year. However, it seems that the watch is available in Japan. I do know that it is on the Longines website and catalogue. I will bring updates on this watch and the other watch I am following (TR1000 from MKII) as when there is news.
Some pictures of the watch borrowed from Japanese website:
I have to say that from the photographs above, it does look good.
