    Hi all.

    Ordered my 42mm Space Grey Apple watch recently (Apr. 25) and have June as my 'Available to ship' date. Just wondering how realistic this is? I've heard some people in pre-orders who had June but are expected to get it within a few weeks instead.

    Thanks.

    The Space Grey looks like it literally is sitting at the right date. I cancelled mine yesterday and went with white instead.

    Seems like the 42mm ship date is now July. :(
    Apple really should of started shipping at WWDC, that way they can solve their manufacturing problem. This is by far the worst product they have launched with such a long delay.

    I agree. I have a feeling it's due to the fact that the haptic motor had to be replaced with a new one.

    To put in perspective...

    I ordered on 10th April, ~6-7 hours after preorders went live.

    May 27th - 9th June for me.

    On May 1 the date jumps two months ahead for shipping. In april it was two months ahead as well.
    April order -> june ship
    May order -> july ship...
    Pattern?

    Yeah I think the SG Sport is basically on the exact day or maybe a day before. Today they are only starting to get into the xx:08 from launch day. I ordered at xx:11:50 on launch day and probably wont get it until Monday or Wednesday next week. But my scheduled delivery day is May 13-May 27.

    Similar situation here, but my order time was xx:12:01. So you and I will ship closely together.

    You really think it could happen as early as Monday or Wednesday? I have my doubts.

    Yeah I'm not being too optimistic about it either. I was hoping to have it by the end of this week, but the way it looks it will most likely be the end of next week... if were lucky. lolol
    And I haven't seem as many :09-:10 orders, because I think a lot of people were like :05-:07 so it may go faster as it goes farther in time.

    Yea I'm thinking the 'crunch' period of time was the first 15 minutes. Once we're past there, I hope they fulfil orders HOURS at a time, not SECONDS

    I go out of town on the 14th, super early... I'd really like to have it by then, but it'd need to ship by Tuesday for that to happen.

    Right now they are doing about a half minute a day. At that rate mine might ship on Wednesday of next week. But I think they will soon get to a minute a day (hopefully by Friday-Saturday) because there are less orders the farther in time you go.

    ----------

    Yeah Hey Im hoping. Right now they are doing about a half hour a day worth of shipping. If that keeps up ours wont ship until Wednesday. But I think they are getting better each day so it might ship Monday or Tuesday and get here Wednesday. hopefully at least!

    I ordered mine on April 25th too. I'm hoping June, but by the looks of it July is more likely of a ship date for us. It doesn't look like they are ramping up production to meet the demand.

    Now shipping until XX:14 it seems! Huge batch just came through. I think either that or we are almost done the crunch times!!!

    I ordered 2.5 hours after orders went live and I have a 28th May - 10th June order so you will be lucky to see anytime before the 20th June I would say

    April 25th Black Sport 42mm - No change in June timframe

    I too ordered on April 25th. Still says June. I IM'd apple this morning, this was their response..

    If earlier availability opens up, then Apple will be the first to send you an email notifying you that your order will be shipped early.

    June is the current availability right now and once your Apple Watch ships out, then you will receive your shipment notification email with your exact date and your tracking information for your order.


    Based on other threads it looks like they're still shipping the black sports watch from April 10/11th orders. Will continue to be a long wait!

    Good luck.

    Ordered 38 on 10th about 10 hours after launch and still have another 1-3 weeks. With this shortage, if prices are still high, I may try to sell it and buy a stainless since some models are shipping in under a week.
