    I ordered Apple watch with black sports band and a white Apple watch sport for my wife both 42mm. Both are 24/4 - 8/5. I also got an extra black leather loop for me which has a slightly longer delay. But that doesn't bother me as I am just happy I'm getting the watch.

    Hello!! I went and tried on the watches at Doncaster this morning then ordered the 38mm sports with white rubber band at 5:03pm through the app. Originally had my heart set on the SS with modern buckle but couldn't justify it with the inkling that better hardware could be out in the not too distant future (I'd love GPS). Also was pleasantly suprised that the sport casing wasn't too different to the SS. Ordered an extra cable and pink rubber band. Looking forward to some third party leather bands. I've popped a few pics up around the threads you may of seen already. Would love to see if you have any!

    Got my order in at 5:02pm or thereabouts. A 38mm SS with black sports band for my wife (she wants to decide on a "proper" band later) and a 42mm SS with Lebanese loop for me :D

    I've also booked an try-on appointment for Sunday, just to be sure...

    Just got home from holidays to try on the Apple Watch and preorder.
    Brisbane CBD store - 38/42mm Space Grey Sport.

    Went with the 42mm Space Grey Sport. Pre-ordered at 5:03PM, and got 24/4 - 8/5 delivery date.
    Did it via Apple Store App and used my Debit Mastercard (commbank).
    Very happy.

    Yep. Definitely sure. Can't really explain the time discrepency. I had the order all ready at 5:01, but did some last minute app banking which took a few minutes. Maybe Apple already 'saved' me in the queue when on the payment section. Ordered via Apple Store app.

    I got my pre-order in pretty quickly when the Apple Store app went live. Very easy process. Delivery is 24/4-8/5. I went with the Sport with blue band plus additional black band. As much as I really wanted the SS I kept thinking back to the iPad gen1 vs gen2 and couldn't quite justify it. I'll give myself a good upgrade come Apple Watch 2.
    Overall I'm very happy though.

    Surprisingly, everything went well.

    Went in at 5:02 on the Apple Store App, went to my stored favourites and ordered my 42mm AW Sport Blue Band

    All I had to do is pump in my cards security code to verify and confirm purchase and then it was done. Got my order confirmation email seconds after

    If you're wondering what card I used, I used a Load & Go Visa Prepaid card from Australia Post. Money was taken out by Apple straight away.

    My estimated delivery date is 24/4 - 8/5

    Pre-Order thread for Australia

    Hey guys,

    Thought I'd start a thread for us here in Auz.

    Anyone had any movement?

    I ordered a 42mm SS with Milanese and am expecting it to arrive this friday.

    Unfortunately greed got the better of me and I put it up on Ebay to see how much I could get for the actual pre order and it was surprisingly high. High enough to sell the watch that I have been waiting years to arrive. I am having regrets and a bit ashamed actually I never thought I'd call myself a scalper. My girlfriend was shocked when I told her. I just hope the buyer unboxes it in front of me when it arrives :(

    *Hangs head in shame*

    If you are strapped for cash, I can see the temptation. I hope it helps you out in some way and the buyer is over the moon with their purchase.
