    I like the look of some Ball watches, but not this one. I don't like how the sugdials cover up the numbers. If the Ball weren't a chrono and had a clea dial, I'd choose that one, but between these 2, I would personally pick the Omega based on looks.

    I saw the Trainmaster Cannonball in white on Monday and I have to say it is very impressive in person. If you can I would take a look at a dealer. It is very beefy but not oversized- very sharp.

    Based on looks, id take the Ball. Based on brand, id take the Omega.

    If I were to pick a railroad watch I'd probably go for the Ball. Probably the Cleveland express for me personally. I'd rather pick a dive or dress watch if it were going to be an Omega.

    I like Ball but that Omega is the nicer of the two.


    Understeer is when you hit the wall with your front end. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with your rear end. Horsepower is how hard you hit the wall. Torque is how far you move the wall.

    Definitely the Omega - it's totally unique, whereas the Ball to me looks like any dozen other watches (sorry Ball guys). Plus, I've always wanted a Railmaster XXL!

    Too many watches, only two wrists and never enough time...

    I'd go with the Omega, way nicer (on looks, build and rep) than the Ball IMHO.

    I'd first figure out if you want a chronograph or not. I like chronographs, so I'd go for the Ball.

    i'd pick the ball because a 49mm watch would look absolutely ridiculous on me
