    Frost- I use Ghostery to see what creepy stuff is loading on pages and FLASHBLOCK to prevent craziness. I admit it sometimes is annoying to activate it on legit sites, but it is SO useful for preventing bad scripts from operating.


    Hamilton all the way. There are a lot of deals on the watch forums too- watchuseek.com and timezone.com.

    Save for the Hamilton. 300+ is awfully expensive for a quartz watch. Relatedish, I just bought a vintage 1950's Hamilton Langdon on eBay and I'm in looove.

    Adblock Plus is excellent free software to prevent such a thing.

    No less than 5 minutes after looking at those hyperlinks, I'm getting watch ads on Dappered Threads and Facebook. Amazon and Google gimme the creepers.

    If you want a Hamilton, you can get an automatic Khaki or Khaki King for way cheaper:

    It doesn't necessarily have to be, but I like the look. I was initially inspired to go with the stainless w/ black face from the following:

    Hard to compare the two since the Victorinox is quartz. Does it have to be a chronograph?

    Victorinox or Hamilton?



    Still deep in research for my next watch. What do you guys think... settle for the Victorinox (closest I could find to the Hamilton at a reasonable price) or keep saving for the Hamilton?
