    No wailing here. Gone this long without one and might as well get what you really want for the price. .. Worst case looking mid May

    I ordered a SS w/ white sport band, then a link bracelet as an add on. The watch is set for 4/24 – 5/8 delivery, and the link bracelet says 2 – 4 weeks, so it looks like this is actually the fastest way to get it.

    Because of that...I bought both the SS and Sport model. The spot will help me pass the time while I wait, so to say.

    I got in straight away in the uk on the app and immediately it was 4-6 weeks. So late May worst case scenario. I went back in after and ordered the sport band in white as an after though.

    I wanted the SS Link but since I saw the shipping times.. I ordered SS with black rubber band. Then I added the link bracelet after. At least I'll get my watch early and wait for the band instead of waiting on all of it.

    Not a big deal

    Don't worry too much! Apple has always been great about shipping times. I'm sure there is a pretty strong chance that ship times will move up (for the lucky few) once they can assign orders to actual units. It will take a week or so but I have confidence that there will at least be a few thousand units for each model by the 24th. I got the 42mm Sport Black which is showing 4-6 weeks. I used the app to get the order processed with a final email timestamp of 3:04. Now we just have to wait and have faith lol. Again though, I SERIOUSLY doubt that they won't be able to ship any units until May. Good luck everybody!

    It will be funny if some folks paid with PayPal while @shipping times up to 6 weeks.

    Cause then, the same ***** as with the nMP will happen, apple charges PayPal only when the product ships, but PayPal only holds orders open for 4 weeks.

    Then they'll cancel the order on their end, Apple won't be able to charge you, therefor cancel your order entirely and you'll be back at the end of the cue.

    I had this issue and spent DAYS on the phone with apple/PayPal/credit card company and no one believed me, up until it actually happened. Then I moved up the Apple support command chain and got one delivered 3 days later, with a 200€ refund. Unbelievable.

    True, my experience with prior preorders is the same. It seems both SS links were 4-6 from the start, maybe some of us will get lucky!
