    I ordered mine the morning of the 10th, just after trying on to ensure I had the right size. I was given a 4-6 week delivery. This is still showing 4-6 weeks if you were to order today.

    Actually, I don't think any of the delivery estimates have changed since April 11th. Just something I've noticed. Wondering if pre-orders slowed down that much?

    I find it hard to believe that 2m+ ordered on day one, then virtually none since. Hoping mine would ship way sooner, but I guess it would apply to all watches since none of the dates have been pushed out any further.

    The 2 - 4 weeks can be misleading because the chances of 2 weeks from pre-order date is very unlikely. That would put you in launch day batch.

    I believe 2 - 4 weeks means 2 - 4 weeks AFTER the 24th.

    Yes, of course. sorry should've included 4-6 weeks = May 13-26


    Really just curious (as I'm sure everyone else is as well) how demand can push deliveries in the first 3-6 hours of ordering, but no shifts since then..

    Essentially, those of you who ordered the phone within the first 4 hrs could end up getting it the same time as someone who orders today. :eek:

    What? no. 2-4 weeks means from order time.

    The simple explanation for the estimate time frames not changing is simple: Apple is making watches roughly on par with the current level of demand.
