    Oh look, more people harassing Apple Support with questions about when their watch is going to ship... how novel.

    Yea, it's possible. Santa Claus might also deliver it. Both are profoundly unlikely. Please don't post every random possible thought that you have.

    Nope sorry.
    For previous product launches, there has been instances where fedex/ups was specifically told not to deliver until launch date. So you won't get it before 4/24.

    Client:
    It's 80 degrees out, is there any chance it could snow?

    Apple:
    It is possible

    Client:
    Oh really?

    Apple:
    Yes, if it starts to snow you'll know it

    Client:
    Wow awesome! Thanks!!

    There are not just instances of that. That's normal operating procedure. There are always a few that slip,through early though.

    I swear these Apple reps are just ****--g with us, sometimes. I bet they have this forum on a big screen in their help desk pit, one guy is showing these posts, and they're all laughing at us.

    In US you can't even chat with apple online. The website ask the registered products etc.

    I think its funny. Don't you know there is at least a few Apple Support reps that are saying to hell with it and saying this stuff just to get a rise out of some poor person who actually believes it....

    SURE....its possible you will get it before Friday....its also possible you will win the Powerball.....go buy a ticket......

    I agree with the OP's supposition that watches will arrive early.

    All mention of the 24th is removed from Apple's website. There's no issue if people get the watches on the 23rd, because no one will show up at an Apple store on the 24th for them anyway. They don't have any to sell.

    So, rather than sitting on them all, why not get them out. It appears the infrastructure is in place now anyway.

    I'm not saying it'll happen, but I have suspected that they might get them out early since they don't list a release date on the website anymore, so they don't have to worry about the "wait in line" crowd to be upset that the "mail order" crowd got their device first. They've been available to see in stores for over a week now, so there's no incentive to keep controlling when and how people interact with the product any further.

    Just putting it out there. This isn't a typical launch. Maybe Apple is doing its "Think different" thing again, applied to themselves this time.

    Parcel carriers are restricted from delivering prior to the 24th.

    No disrespect to you, but you sound like an impatient child asking "are we there yet?" You already know we will likely be receiving our watches on the 24th, what's the point of pestering the Apple customer care reps with unnecessary questions wasting their time, your time, and the time of someone who may have a real problem on their hands that needs immediate attention.

    Do I think there's a possibility we might see watches arrive tomorrow or Thursday? Yes. Why? Well, for starters, this launch is nothing like an iPhone launch and due to supply issues there is no actual "launch event." We have also seen celebrities already sporting theirs in the wild. Most importantly is the scheduled workshops at stores on Friday 4/24. Some (such as The Grove in LA) are scheduled as early as 11am. Unless they're confident enough people will rush over to the store immediate following delivery, I think it's a good sign we will see deliveries prior to Friday for some.

    Since they removed the 24th as launchday, it's quite possible that we will see a lot of early shipments.

    If Beyoncé could have her watch now without paying a penny (I assume this of course), then there is no way we cannot have it before the 24th considering we actually pay for it :)

    Uhm...

    Nothing says the launch date has been changed.

    ...and notice the 24 on the watch face.
