Just to be clear I dont have one but I wish I do!!
I had a chance to play with one and the clicks of the chrono buttons are very firm and precise and i can feel a nice "click" when I push on them. Despite it being a 50 or 60 year old watch, the buttons feel much better than my Breguet XX!
It has an interesting old style tradiional dial. It definitely looks like a vintage watch. Actually it feels also quick thick due to the narrower diameter vs the 5970.
It actually feels more interesting than the 3970 when I had them side by side. I like the 3970 but when next to the 2499, there is only one winner! 2499 gets the nod. When put next to each other, its like the 3970 is classical but not classic enough vs the 2499. Its more modern in design but not modern enough.... this is where the 5970 wins I think.
MY CONSLUSION FOR MYSELF! Have a 2499 and a 5970!
