I finally choose the carrera montreal 160 th anniversary

Hello All,
I choose the montreal because it is more colored, the dial as a beautiful eggshell and blue subdials, the inserts are shining. The dial is wondreful with the deep subdials like the paul newman dial.
In a word it is more fun that the original silver one.
I also saw the monaco formula 1 with a beautiful red dial and white subdials but i found it too big for my wrist. It was a difficult choice.
I did not wait to see the fragment formula 1 (it will be available in France on the 20th of august) because i find the dial too simple : i miss the insert and I dislike the word fragment.
Those 4 limited watches has the new in house caliber 02 wich is an upgrade of the TAG-HEUER watches.
I do not like the crystal back, they should have give the choice to have the crystal or the plain steel back.
I do not like also the "one of 1000". They should have numbered the limited editions.
here is some scans:
