    Did anybody who ordered an Apple Watch from Colette on Black Friday receive an order update yet? I emailed them yesterday, but I have yet to receive a response.

    Patience. Ordered stuff on Thursday from Macy's and haven't even received an order update or email yet and Macy's is pretty legit I heard.

    Yes, I am from the US. I read their FAQ section before ordering, and it stated that they do indeed ship to other countries.

    This question actually relates to another one of my concerns—the possibility of being charged customs fees and additional taxes upon the device's arrival. Has anyone had any experience with ordering from Europe? Were there any additional charges added once it arrived in the US?

    I ordered some Jordan's off a site from Europe earlier this year and no customs were attached or anything. Might depend on the retailer

    If you don't mind me asking, what site did you order from?

    I wouldn't feel too bad about missing out. I might end up paying retail after taxes and customs fees anyway.

    My Colette order has shipped! SS 42mm black sport band.

    It's pretty exciting considering I heard a lot of orders received cancelation emails.

    I received 2 of the watches I ordered, 38mm Black SS w/ black Link band and 38mm SS w/link band.
    Where is best place to sell these? Ebay, CL or ??

    eBay has fees that will eat into your profit, Craigslist does not.

    eBay is national, Craigslist is local.

    Check out Craigslist in your area and see what they're going for.

    eBay and PayPal will collect 13 percent and you have to pay for shipping and insurance and the sale won't be final for up to 45 days. CL is best if you are street smart and live on a good area. Nothing beats a final sale with no options for a refund.

    Are these watches considered gray market? Meaning will Applecare US cover them?

    Just received my 42mm SS w/ black Sportband. Not sure if I should sell it or keep it. I already have a Space Grey Sport.

    I Ordered the link bracelet and received Tuesday. Not opened, Apple package and only took a few days to receive. Great deal. and no problems, Very Impressed.

    On a side note an iPad Pro I ordered has taken a month from AT&T. Go figure. France got it to me in a few days. Cheers.

    Mine arrived literally 24 hours after being shipped, but I kept missing the delivery man.

    Unless your intention from the get-go was to sell it and make a quick buck... I'd keep it. At that price, I'd happily sell a sport model and upgrade. Unless of course the weight/space grey colour outweigh the SS/sapphire build to you. I personally think the SS looks much better and, as been said before, more flexibility with different bands.
