    I had the same shipping date as as you both for my SS 42 LTE.

    Mine shipped from Changshu, China I assume its catching a flight in Shanghai, CN. Shipping says Standard still but Apples Standard Shipping is usually just a few days which is good considering most stuff you order from china takes a month + to get (At least the stuff in the past not thru apple). Mine started moving at like 2am EST. and I will have it by Friday. I wish you guys the best.

    Sounds like ours might be the Monday Delivery (unless they do Saturday). Guess I need to track as mine is coming to my office and if coming Saturday, I better work!

    Is anyone upgrading from a Series 2 to a Series 3? I’d like to, though I cannot seem to find a place where I’ll get a decent return on my SS Series 2.

    I picked up my SBSS 42/Milanese this morning at Apple... As I mentioned, I had one on order from AT&T; I cancelled SBSS/sport on 9/22 to get faster shipping Milanese and it took 3 days to get order to go through for SBSS/Milanese, so AT&T order date was officially 9/25. I checked istocknow every few hours and after giving up, checked again because others on this thread had success yesterday. Looks like the watches are trickling in, as I was able to snag mine, and someone else was there picking up a SG Alu 42.

    The Apple employee told me he used istocknow, as well. Ha!

    First impressions: for those coming from a S0, this is so worth the wait. It's so much smoother, and the LTE is sweet...

    I ordered mine with EE about a week ago and was originally told it would be end of October. Then mine moved to 3rd-9th. Then today which is the 3rd it said it would be delivered... on the 3rd . I’m expecting it to arrive tomorrow, I asked for it to be delivered to store. It said it’s been dispatched so... let’s see!

    I know man trust me I understand. I checked my shipping maybe a million times. Yeah it’s definitely not fair if you ordered yours first. They need to fix whatever system they have. It’s horrible. I hope you hear something soon. I’ll keep ya posted on what’s going on.

    I keep thinking I should just order it and wait for Nov 7th instead of checking websites daily

    Congrats!!! I can’t wait to get mine. It seems like it doesn’t really matter when you order. They just get delivered whenever.

    My store said the same thing the some popped up in stock I swapped my SS 42LTE out for a SS SB 42LTE. I would check daily through out the day. I have seen several models randomly pop up in th last 2-3 days.

    Preordered gray Series3 edition from B&H on 9/19
    Didn't work out quite as expected
    Now they are closing shop 10/4-10/14 for a holiday (which I was unaware of) and telling me "ETA sometime in November" (I guess Apple will not bother sending them anything while their business is closed) ...

    I am not seeing many (any) comments about 38mm SS watches with white sport band being delivered. Am I imagining things?
    That is what I ordered from Apple on 9/16. Delivery date is getting closer, I was just hoping that it would be delivered early.

    Yeah I noticed that too. That is what I ordered too but mine isn’t expected until oct 24th at the earliest. (Ordered 9-27)
    I haven’t seen anyone take delivery yet on that model.
    On checking Apple stock, all 12 of the Apple stores within a 87 mile radius of me are now saying available nov.7th. Yikes!
