    Does anyone know when bands, any bands really, are going to be available to pickup at retail stores? Or at least short shipping times? I have a 38mm SS BCB that I'm really liking, and the band is too small. I was going to give this one to my wife whenever my 42mm SG shipped, but I'm thinking about keeping it and need a bigger band.

    Not sure if anyone really knows the answer to that question. Supplies for everything seem to be really constrained right now. People who have ordered bands are either just starting to get them or getting shipping windows. I order the light blue leather band at 3:01 on launch day and I was just notified that I will ship either then last week of May or by early June.

    So realistically, it may be at least another month or more before you start seeing the bands in stores. But that's just a guess.

    Well my 42mm BSB band just arrived today, two weeks after the watch, so that's the first time I've seen one in the wild in its own box. Stores will take forever though.

    Ordered a black sports band at the pre-order launch and it arrived today. Bands are just now starting to trickle out, but there's no telling what the backlog is or how many bands will continue to divert towards filling complete watch orders.

    I went ahead and orders a BSB. Hopefully it ships quickly. Thanks for your posts.
