Park BBT19 is what I use. The Enduro tool (from enduroforkseals.com) is also very nice.

I have this:

It does not mar the cups and, like the Park tool noted above, allows the use of a torque wrench (which some do not). The other side works for the preload bolt (no need for a second tool) and the price is decent.

I also use the Park BBT-19. You can use it with a large wrench or a torque wrench. I have used it on my Campy, Shimano and Chris King bottom brackets without any marring.
