    On the 10th April, what time will the AW be available to pre-order in the UK please?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's varied over the years.

    Sometimes it's 9am local time, and preo orders slowly start around the world.

    Sometimes, it's been a worldwide launch, and usually falls in the middle of the night UK time.

    Right now, nobody could say either way.

    Just keep hitting that page refresh button in your browser and staring (bleary-eyed!) at your screen and you'll find out! ;)

    Apple orders normally open at midnight Cupertino time.

    Currently, the UK is 7 hours ahead of Cupertino, so Midnight there would be 7am here.

    However, our clocks will go forward in approximately 10 days (last weekend in March I think), so come the watch's preorder date., we'll be 8 hours ahead.

    I'd say pre orders will start at 8am in the UK.

    Luckily for me I will be on holiday at home at the time so staying up late or not have to worry about going to work in the morning and missing the start of the preorders isn't going to be a problem for me. :)

    I'm expecting 8am - luckily I "start" work at 7am so I'll have the website loaded and ready to go...

    Though I recall the iPhone Apple Store app was more reliable than apple.com when it came to iPhone pre-orders

    Oh and remember to turn on one-click checkout to save valuable seconds

    EDIT - Update to this - 'Favourite' your preferred watch(es) and then they're ready to check out immediately (via Your Account > Favourites), saving even more time navigating the minefield that can be the Apple Store

    Thanks everyone. Well I'm unemployed at the moment, so will be at home but awake before 8 am, so that's great.
