I have to recuse myself on this one.

The X-Copter is on my "must have" list.

The no day/date window on the VSA is a let down for me also BUT I still just like the overall look of the VSA much more. So my vote goes to the Swiss Army in this battle.

Toss up for me. I do believe the VSA is a little bigger at 45.4 vs,44mm I would go with the Vic.

I think there is a date window at 6:00. I like the classic look of this one but would like a metal bracelet (on either).

You are 100% correct. I mean the day window part, but I still pick the Swiss Army over the Hamilton just based on the overall look of the watch to me.
And you know I agree with you about preferring the bracelet, lol!

Victorinox makes quality "stuff". I have a Vic. backpack, a Vic. ski jacket anda Vic. knife.

I'll go with the Victorinox watch, as well. I guess I like the Victorinox style.

Wow that is a tough choice. The problem for me on this one is these in my opinion are completely different watches. Im going with the Victorinox.

Vic for me, I love the Hammy but the dial & Bezel are just too busy for me. IMHO

Hammy for me. The unique exhibition caseback is just one of the cool features of this piece.

This is a hard choice. Think the Hammy pops a little bit more to me.

I own 3 hammy's including that exact same x-copter model and i also own 4 vicky's excluding the chronopro (favorite 2 brands in that price range) but i definitely have to go with the x-copter , i've had it for almost3 years now and that 7750 is runnig just as good as the first day i bought it (-1/+1 a day) , great looking to for my taste.
