Did ANY Stainless Steel Buyers get a ship date faster than May 13?

    Just curious, because I have a feeling that all orders show "Delivers: May 13 - May 27". If it's anything like the last iPhone launch, I hope that date moves up to the 24th.

    Sidenote: I had my order in at 12:01, confirmation at 12:02. I highly doubt that they sold out in < 1 minute.

    I'm assuming you ordered the link bracelet? In that case, no one got a date before May 13th. The other SS models had April ship estimates.

    My conf email was at 0008, so I know I submitted the order within like 3min of that. Mine is June. Mine is SS 42mm Space Black w/ Space Black link band.

    Yup, link bracelet. I do hope the dates improves, this is the highest end of all the watches (excluding edition) so a little better response from Apple is warranted.

    I sure do too, I ordered the Space Black SS. I'm honestly going to be very surprised if our watches aren't on our wrists before May 13th. :cool:

    Stainless Steel + White Sport, 38mm shipping 4/24-5/8.

    Then separately ordered link bracelet and got almost identical shipping range even while the SS + Link watch variation had 4-6 weeks estimate. Go figure.

    I ordered a 42mm SS with Black Classic Buckle (delivery 24/4-8/5) and a separate 42mm SS Link Bracelet (delivery: 28 Apr, 2015 - 11 May), so I might have both by 28 April. Both were ordered via the app on my iPad and confirmation emails within 3 mins of store going up.

    Having tried both on yesterday, I was more impressed with the Black Classic Buckle than I expected, so I might cancel the SS Link Bracelet pre-order and just stick with the leather strap for now.

    I ordered a 42mm SS + black sport band (confirmation at 12:06 PDT) and got a 24/4 - 8/5 delivery. Based on Apple's estimate with my iPhone 6 Plus (estimate of 2-3 weeks and shipping 3 business days later) I expect that it will be on my wrist on the 24th and people with 4-6 weeks will have it on the 1/5 - 15/5.

    I did this same thing for my husband's watch. Got the same dates as you, I bet. Link band shipping 4/29-5/12?

    I wonder why ordering them separately gets us the whole watch combo faster? I'm glad it works out that way. :)

    All initial link bracelet orders had May 13-May 27 delivery dates, but some of the other SS models were available to ship April 24th.

    The sport version had date slippage way before the stainless steel models did. I know because I was undecided to the last moment and I guess 3am isn't the best time to make a decision but I went with the sport because I want a light watch. I had the stainless steel in my favorites though and I saw all the sport versions in my favorites slip to June while the stainless steel still said april.

    I'm in the UK and I preordered the 42mm Stainless Steel with a black sport band soon after the preorders started and got a delivery estimate of April 24th to May 8th.
