    Question Omega Railmaster or Eberhard & Co. 8 jours (days)?

    I was able to wrangle a trade in for about nine watches of mine for a watch and cash, but I'm having a tough time choosing between those two watches. Yes, I do know the two are like night and day, but I'm looking for a decent dress watch which I might gift my dad.

    I think the Eberhard is a bit rarer and more of a classy watch. The 8 day power reserve is really nice feature as well (handwind). The Omega is a bit more versatile and can dress-down, unlike the Eberhard. I might also be getting the Eberhard at a slightly lesser price (both are brand new) ... ahh, might as well go ahead and welcome me officially to flipperville now, Dennis

    Which social setting does your dad find himself the majority of time? Does he wear watches during specific outings, or is he likely to wear one, day in, day out?

    He likes to wear his watches most of the day, just takes them off when he's out golfing - usually wears a quartz then. He used to have a very impressive collection of vintages, so I think he'd prefer something a bit old-fashioned.

    The Eberhart.
    The Railmaster is the least visually nice Omega since the early 1970ies. IMO.

    This one might be a slightly older model, but just as beautiful as the ones you've displayed, I think. And, I suspect the case of this model is SS, not gold.

    I would definitely go for the Eberhard. Seem like a really nice watch wth a special movement. The Railmaster is just another Omega like the Aquaterra to me.
