    Just got an Amex push notification that Apple have taken payment for my watch even through I'm on the 4/6 week delivery window.

    Is this some covert signal that the order is closer to shipping early? Anyone else had this?

    That's a good sign. Give it an hour or two and see if you go into "Preparing for Shipment."

    Check your status in 30-60 minutes and see if it has changed to "preparing for shipment." If so, it would be good news.

    Interesting. Do let us know what you ordered and please keep us updated. Thanks!

    Also, everyone should take note that JLS is located in England.

    I think I'll have a spot of tea while I await the verdict here.

    Same has happened to me.

    I ordered a 42mm SS Milanese for the 4/24-8/5 window, and a 42mm Sport with white strap for a 4-6 week wait.

    Both have just been charged.

    I'm waiting for a 'pics or it didn't happen'... :rolleyes:

    Only proof I have is a drop in my available balance:

    You would then see my bank balance,
    You would then have to trust me when I say what my overdraft is,
    You would then have to trust me when I say available balance was higher before.

    Let's be honest. In a world with Photoshop, that still doesn't mean much.

    I am calling BS, but I would be happy to be wrong. Until we start seeing a few more people I just don't believe that the 4-6week group is getting charged.

    When this starts happening the forum will go crazy, and it will happen with many people, just like yesterday.

    Well, I have. Member for 5 years, 250+ posts.

    Edit: I must say not being believed and not being able to prove yourself is absolutely unbelievably infuriating.

    I've seen a couple of instances where people have been charged for their wave 1 watch AND a wave 2 watch as well. But not a wave 2 watch only.

    Any proof will be rubbished anyway, so what is the point of posting it to let yourself in for abuse.

    Interesting that the OP hasn't posted in 9 years...
