    I was debating with @Yago and @Anthony.R the merits of and comparing all the different glassbox Carreras that have been issued on private chat, and given this series seems to be at a logical end now with the release of the panda, I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated topic to discuss and compare all of these watches.

    I'm going to kick things off by giving my own personal ranking of these 10 models, from favourite to least. But even the ones at the bottom of the list are terrific in my opinion and with the exception of the Montreal I'd love to own them all.

    I'd also like to see lots of pictures in this thread, especially from those who own more than one or have been collecting them (@Hubert I'm talking to you!). :)

    Can you do a combined list @kappa_md ? I was thinking I might assign formula one style points from each "race" and then provide a championship result :)

    Edit: Perhaps for an entry to be valid, you have to also post a picture of a glassbox model you own to the thread?

    Shouldn't someone organize some sort of poll to find out which is the best of the best?

    It's not working like that, sorry Rob.

    Eveyone has to publish a full order of 10 models. And accompany it with a picture of their glassbox. :p

    I could give you that list, but you wouldn't like it.

    But actually it would be funny seeing you guys trying to put 10 perfect watches in order.
    Bet the green Carrera would be last...
