Not AT&T but I did order through Verizon on the morning of September 9. AW Ultra with Orange Alpine Loop band. The order has consistently been showing as "Shipping on September 23" with no additional shipping details. Based upon this I assume Verizon will receive the watch ON September 23 and then ship it to me on that day. Which would mean I get the watch sometime the following week.

Interesting… I was given an eta of 11/18-11/25 for the orange alpine large, which is why I switched to the yellow ocean band.
I initially ordered on 9/9

Mine is showing expected ship date 9/23-10/7 as well. My guess is these won't move until Wed at the earliest and probably Friday at latest. I had a mid to late Oct delivery date for my iPhone 14 Pro Max and it arrived from AT&T today. I'm sure they'll have enough of these to go around as well I'm guessing.

My 14PM was ordered 5 minutes before the AWU. It had a ship date of 15th but shipped on the 12th. I expect to see an update Wednesday for the watch and think it will arrive Monday at the latest. I could be wrong and it not ship until October. I hope not.

I decided at the last minute I wanted the AMU with a midnight ocean band. I ordered yesterday. My estimated dates are 10/10-10/17. Does the  WATCH ever deliver earlier than estimated when your dates are after launch day?

Possibly…

I ordered the orange alpine AWU on 9/10 with a trade in, and my eta was 11/18-11/25…. Now I’m seeing 10/17-10/24 for same configuration.

OR it could go the other way and get pushed back ☹️

Oh no! I definitely hope not! I hope your dates move up even sooner ❤️

That band is a one size fit all, but I ordered the orange alpine (large) thru Apple.
lol I realized that the ocean bands are one size once I hit “post reply”. The yellow band is currently 10/5-10/12. I might as well wait the extra 1-2 weeks and get what I want instead of getting it fast and paying an extra $100.00 for the midnight band.

Ah. In my case I figure I have a couple of options to wear, and with the ocean band I now have a reason to jet ski more 🤣…

Ordered the Ultra from AT&T with the Diving Band about an hour after initial preorder kicked in with a delivery window between September 23rd and October 7th. Just got tracking from AT&T and it says it will deliver tomorow. Wondering if Fedex has to hold for delivery on the 23rd at the earliest. We will see what happens, apparently I chose the right band.

That’s great. Congrats. I had same shipping estimate as you. What band did you choose? Also, what state you in? I’m in TN so I’m only about 4 hours away from one of the main FedEx hubs in Memphis. Hoping I have some tracking tomorrow.
