    I've got a 42mm Space Gray Sport, ordered at xx.03
    Still processing, received EOD. No charge.

    Wondering if I'd be better off ordering a 42mm silver. Might get it quicker at this rate!

    I'll obviously keep the other order open...

    What is the best SKU, band wise right now? Blue? White?

    I ordered a silver sport with blue band as some who had ordered had them ship the next day, but no luck for me. Ship date says June.

    I wouldn't cancel any orders until you have at least one ship.

    someone said that they ordered the green sport last week and it shiped this week so as long as its not SG you have a better chance of getting it sooner.

    Agreed, don't cancel any orders to at least one ships. I think next week will be a good week for shipments,I'm sure there will be a lot of movement this weekend with flights bring product over to the states.

    If you are in the 4/24 - 5/8 delivery window, I'd guess that 90% of the people in that window will get a watch by 5/1. So if you can wait a week, I'm guessing you'd have your space grey.

    I'm trying to figure this out as well. But I have a feeling my 38mm space grey will come through in the next few days.

    It's not fun now but I have my GF's white sport until then. I would like to hear something official from Apple before I do anything like cancel my order.

    Or if there is ZERO movement of SGS black band 38mm in the coming days then I may start reconsidering.

    Because right now I have only seen one persons card charged. And I have seen one box in the wild from one of the boutique's.

    I think the wait will be worth it. Maybe by some miracle I will have 2 boxes when I get home from work this evening. People have said it has happened so we shall see. I did see an abnormal about of FEDEX semi-trucks going down the highway this morning. Who knows! I'm along for the ride at the moment.

    Will Apple put a full hold on my card if I order a silver now? Really don't want to get a hold put in for that, and then charged for the space gray...

    there wont be a hold.. they charge you when its going to be shipped and you have to cancel before they charge your credit card.

    It will be the same hold as the original order. If your bank took the full amount then and then gave it back it will most likely do the same.

    blue one has been shipping the quickest according to a couple other people. order quick enough and you might get it early next week.

    I have decided to go this route also (kinda), ordered an SS Watch 42... whichever ships first, I'll buy.
