Pros: Ceramic is great for resisting scratches. Great daily wearer. Samwich dial is delish :-P Plentiful right now and quite easy to get

Cons: Don't drop it or it'll crack! Wish it were 47mm.

Pros: Awesome looking, virtually un-scratchable, unusual, stealth, unique case material, always looks new.

Cons: An unbelievable pain in the neck to change straps (even more than a normal Rad), conceivably could shatter or crack (I've seen pics of a cracked ceramic PAM, so it can happen)

...what do you mean with

"Cons: An unbelievable pain in the neck to change straps (even more than a normal Rad)"

Why is this one more difficault to change straps on compared to other Rad's?

It might be because of the risk of scratching the coating off them?

the 292 also has small plastic caps that go over the tip of each lug wire where it enters the case. These caps have holes in them where the screws that hold the lug wires in place pass through them and contact the lug wires themselves inside the case. If the caps aren't lined up properly when you tighten down the screws they get ruined, requiring replacement.

Also in my experience the lug wires on the 292 are not exactly confidence inspiring. After a few changes they tend to stay loose no matter what you do... meaning the screws are fully tightened and everything is mounted properly, but the wires will still move around a little bit.

Bottom line is, when I wear my 292 I check the screws and lugs etc. far more often than on a normal rad because it never feels completely secure to me. In all honesty the whole system is janky IMO and really could have been better engineered.
