    I hadn't seen anyone posting any updates, but are there any orders for modern buckles that have been charged or had any change in status?

    I ordered 38mm SS with brown at 3:10am.

    I really wish there was movement but it seems today was all for sport and some SS models :(

    Any Modern Buckle Orders Preparing for Shipment?

    Has anyone been charged or received "preparing for shipment" on a modern buckle order?

    I ordered a 38 mm SS blue modern buckle on 4/10/15 at 12:08 am. I'm in the 05/13-27/15 camp, and still in "Processing." Seeing lots of other orders charging and preparing for shipment has my hopes up, but I'm not seeing any modern buckles. Anyone?

    Thanks.

    Along with the black leather loop, model.

    Guess which models my wife and I ordered....

    Yep SS + black leather loop, and SS + modern buckle.

    No stock at launch. :(

    I ordered both of those at 12:03am PT. Like many others, if I'd known those particular combos would be unavailable at launch, I'd have ordered different bands and then picked up the leather loop/modern buckle at a later date.

    less than 10 people responded to this thread... i guess not only that we're the unluckiest, but we're also the unpopular ones. :mad::mad::mad:

    No movement on my wife's 38mm Modern Buckle Small - ordered 3:04am eastern time.

    No movement on my 42mm Milanese 5/13 - 5/27 either (ordered 3:30am eastern).

    Tbh it doesn't surprise me if they're still in production. If people's that are currently being shipped were only manufactured shockingly a week ago.... Who knows. Only Apple.

    Mine is a 42MM SS with Classic Buckle. It's in preparing to ship with tracking by reference showing delivery tomorrow but nothing from Apple. My CC was charged.

    I don't think they would have moved it to preparing to ship and created a label if they didn't have any.

    It is possible they were delayed though. Maybe they were expecting them, and didn't get them?

    if there is a low volume of orders for modern buckles, Apple should churn those out quickly so one segment of apple customers are happy!

    ikr, seems like there is some mysterious difficulty on making those models or bands. according to some it takes 9 hours to make a link bracelet (don't know how accurate that is but regardless), on the other hand, our band looks SO MUCH EASIER to make.

    just ship the watch already. -.-

    Nah, lots of us think you are great and we'll be very jealous when yours arrive. I wanted a modern buckle but when I saw they wouldn't ship until later, I ordered the sports band. I wanted a sports band anyway for working out. But as soon as the modern bands become available separately, I'll be on them! ;)
