Neither. Panaracer Pasela PT. They're on all my 27" bikes and they're awesome; I wouldn't even consider anything else for myself. PT = Protection Technology, i.e., puncture resistance. The tires themselves are light, fast, and long-lasting. And the skinwalls are *perfect* on a vintage bike.
...they're not overly pricey, either.

EDIT: Full disclosure: I haven't used the Schwalbe tires and have no personal experience with them. Continentals, I've only ridden in 700x23 and cannot speak to the ride on the wider versions.
A race bike in any era is a highly personal choice that at its "best" balances the requirements of fit, weight, handling, durability and cost tempered by the willingness to toss it and oneself down the pavement at considerable speed. ~Bandera
