    Let's hear from those that pre-ordered the 42mm SS with Milanese band and got the 5/13 - 5/27 (4 to 6 weeks) shipping window.

    I believe some have received a shipping notice and would like to hear from them.

    not me. ordered at 4 AM. I suspect next week we'll see some activity as a lot of '4/24' people have been getting activity today (and I suspect a lot tonight)

    What time did you order? Do you have proof?

    Appparently the UK gets more Milanese love then the US.

    I'm the same time frame but no charge, still processing, no email, in the Midwest US.

    Not sure what that means since the shipping window has not changed. Has the total charge for your order been posted?

    Yes been charged. I've read a few posts where people have had their status changed but the shipping window has stayed the same. I've also checked on UPS and there's a parcel showing, but no details yet

    Definitely have seen this to be true. Odd.

    I'm a 38 mm but ordered 4/10 5 AM. Hopefully next week!

    Model: 42mm SS Milanese
    Current Status: Processing
    Location: Florida

    Still holding out hope that some charges go out today for us in the later window since people in Europe in this window are getting them in the next few days.

    And still processing. So guess April will probably just come and go.

    Every other product launch I was able to get in line and buy it the next morning no issue. This is the first Apple product where they eliminated all store sales on launch day leaving me very unsatisfied.

    I know this delivery window was later (even though I ordered within the first few minutes). It didn't help that I kept seeing messages of people with my same delivery timeframe and ended up getting theirs because I chose the wrong watch/band combination.

    This experience leaves me depressed and bitter.

    Yes I agree. Also, the fact that they didn't let us try on the watches before the pre-order. They should have done try-on's at 4/3, pre-order at 4/10.

    Basically I ordered a 38mm Milanese at 3:04 and got a 4/24 delivery date. Then I ordered a 42mm Milanese at 3:30am just in case and got a 5/13-5/27 delivery date. When I went to the store, the 38mm just was too small for me in my opinion.

    Now I'm stuck waiting. First World problems

    I'm in this club, although later than all the rest of you so far. My confirmation email was at 6:10 AM EDT.

    I'd love to see a graph of number of orders over time starting at 12:00 AM PDT and continuing throughout the first day. Clearly there were many, many thousands of orders in the first few minutes, but I'm guessing that it trickled off quite rapidly after 12:15 AM or so, and by the time you get to my order at 3:10 AM, there probably weren't that many orders going on, comparatively speaking.

    I agree. I'm with you with a 4/10 5 AM Pacific.
    I bet once we hit the 12:10 mark, suddenly we'll be getting notifications all over the place for time. I mean the 4/10 order group should all get their watches ahead of schedule (that's obviously not certain)

    What was frustrating to me was that at Midnight on 4/10 I was refreshing the Apple Website, to no avail, instead of going to the Apple Store App. I finally decided to try the App at 12:13 AM and I got right through, of course. I am going out of town on May 16th and hope I get it before that!

    I leave on the 14th a day after the first orders are supposed to come in for our group! I am so scared I'll have to change my shipping address last minute
