    I just ordered my 38mm SS Milanese on 5/4. I'm so excited to get it!

    If you got the 38mm SS Milanese around this time, post here when it ships along with the day you bought it.

    Update: My delivery date is June 5-18

    Hope you like it more than I did. I returned mine.

    Removed comments. Better to let people find out for themselves.

    I ordered my 38 mm SS Milanese on April 17.

    My original delivery date was May 20-June 3

    Last week, they updated delivery date to May 20-28.

    Just this morning, my order status is now showing "preparing for shipment"

    That's fantastic!

    That's a 2.5 week turnaround from order to ready to ship, which I hope bodes well for my 38 SS ML, ordered 4/27 (5/29-6/11 window), in California.

    What country are you in?

    That's too bad you had a poor experience. I've owned ss watches as well as mesh bands so hopefully your issues weren't too out of the ordinary.

    Awesome! My delivery date is June 5-18. Hopefully it gets bumped up as well.

    I would agree with you except that another Macrumor's member had the same exact experience as me and is also returning his ML band.

    That size is perfect on you. 42mm would look ridiculous.

    That's great! Exactly two weeks after ordering. If that happens for me, it'll arrive on my birthday! :cool:

    I printed out my return label yesterday, Armen.

    I haven't mailed it yet. Did you already get your refund for it?

    My SS WSB came yesterday. Comfy. Less expensive. :)

    Don't know what's up with my order. Called Apple Support and they're no more useful than the repeating what's on the website's order status page.

    I placed an order for a 42mm SS Milanese much earlier on 4/22 and I'm just in a vague "June" window.

    Sorry to hear that mate. This thread is for 38mm watches.

    I ordered this variant on 4/27, I will be receiving it today, 5/8.

    Less than 2 weeks, from order date! I had a 4-6 week wait, with a delivery estimate of 5/29-6/11. I was not notified of going to 'preparing for shipment', I'm just OCD/ADD :p

    Apple is faster than I thought :)

    California, btw.

    I haven't received the Sport band replacement yet bunny. Once that arrives (looks like May 22) I'm going to print my ML return label and take it to an Apple store for them to ship it back.

    That's smart. Mine is easier since I'd ordered 2 watches for my son's birthday, and one of them was a SS WSB. I just have to return my entire watch.

    I do want a less casual band, but without them selling the Modern Buckle right now, I'll just have to borrow my son's classic or something if I require something nicer than a sport band. Which should be only occasionally.

    Maybe a good 3rd party band will appear. Who knows?

    I really like the WSB. I think the extra one I ordered is due about the same time as the one you ordered for the band swap. My son already asked if he could have it. LOL.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see brand name bands for the watch later this year considering Apple is providing band guidelines to vendors.

    Imagine this Burberry band on an Apple watch (would look on the SG in my opinion or the SS model)
