There doesn't seem to be much info on this piece.
There was a thread previously highlighting that the dial is not ecru.
Also, the first production run has been upped from 500 to 700 pieces.
I still think it's a great piece but can anyone enlighten on the changes?
Thanks : )

i prefered the 3 day version when i compared side to side. the 8 day was a bit too thick for my taste for a rad but the 3 day was perfect.

do you mean the PAM292? I believe these are the only 2 Radiomir PAMs in ceramic right?
I understand what you mean about the thickness but once on the wrist, I find the difference negligible.
Apart from Martin's post on this watch with 2 excellent photos and a few pre-release reviews on other forums, there's really very little feedback on this watch - and judging from the response to this post, I guess not much interest generally.
Well Martin, if you read this post, maybe you could verify if the piece you photographed actually had ecru lume?
Based on my encounters with this watch, the lume is actually greenish (but very slightly) exactly like that of the 292 - kind of off-white plus some light sprinkling of minty green.
I do hope there are some 384 owners out there who can also chime in : ) - thanks!

i don't know but it seems a lot sleeker and better proportioned to my eye. very elegant as a rad should be.

The lug screws are not black (dlc/pvd) but brushed steel instead.
This was a good move which I've also noticed on the newer 292s and was likely OP's reaction to numerous issues with scratched screws.
So, no ecru, 700 instead of 500 of the series, brushed screws are probably the differences I've picked up.
