I think we need more tiers...

Tier (the highest) 1):

Carrera Dato 12 with Contrasting Sub's (black on white, white on black doesn't matter)

Tier 1b: (not quite at the level of Tier 1, but above 2 and nearing 1's current):

McQueen Monaco
PVD case Monaco

Tier 2 (not quite at the Monaco level above but a notch below):

Carrera 3 reg manual with contrasting dial colour (e.g. black, white registers or silver with black registers)

Tier 3:

Jo Siffert Autavia
Carrera 12 (In White or Black SS, or Gold in any color)

Tier 4:

Autavia GMT's (both manual wind and autos)

Tier 5:

70's Carrera's
5100 Carrera
Pasadena's series
"mundane" Autavia's
Lemania based TAG-Heuer Carrera Re-Editions

Tier :

Jackie Ickx "Easy-Rider"

I know I've left off quite a few, I'm not afamiliar with many of the ommissions.

You're thoughts?
