Yeah it sucks, but order updates usually occur in late afternoon/evenings. I'm hoping we should see something by latest tomorrow 9pm if not earlier.

I ordered a 42/SS/Milanese at 3:02 am (from home in MD for delivery at my office in DC). My AMEX (using Apple Pay) was charged this afternoon and my order status was changed to Preparing to Ship.

Yeah I've noticed also that the 38mms have been preparing for shipment more often. Hopefully this means we are next

Nice. That explains it, you were about 3 mins earlier. Hoping to see mine update soon. Once it says preparing for shipment, there should be no doubt it arrives by Friday

Virginia (Alexandria) here and my credit card was charged today at 4:20pm and order status changed to Preparing for Shipment shortly after. 38mm SS Milanese Loop. This is exactly the same timing so far as my iPhone 6. Was charged for that on the Tuesday before delivery and received shipping notification on Thursday. Delivery on Friday. Hoping the same thing happens this time! If you haven't been charged yet, hang in there. There is still time if they ship overnight. :)

I like the positive thinking from you guys. I just wanna see preparing for shipment. I definitely trust Next Day Air. Just wanna have a good launch day with an Apple Watch on my wrist.

Time will tell though. Maybe even by Thursday early we could receive notifications for Friday Delivery...who knows

DMV 4/24-5/8 watch orders

I ordered a 42mm SS with classic buckle at 3:02 am. Got charged Monday and has been sitting at preparing for shipment since. Nothing showing on on UPS MyChoice and can't locate by reference number. I really hope it's coming Friday. I live about 20 mins from the UPS hub in Laurel.

Maryland resident here (though I recently moved to Virginia the past weekend). Watch is being shipped to my firm in DC.

Ordered a 42mm SS with Black Classic Buckle. Still stuck in "Processing" purgatory. My PNC debt card linked to Apple Pay still hasn't been charged.

Montgomery County...42mm SS Classic Buckle is Preparing to Ship. I suspect that almost everyone in the DMV will receive their watches via FedEx Overnight. If it was UPS, I would have received notification by UPS MyChoice by now.

Same. All my UPS packages being delivered to my office in DC come through Landover. Pretty much given up on expecting it to arrive this Friday at this point. Sigh.

Me too I have my ups delivery at work in DC.... Dang so is everyone here working in dc?

I heard that orders could update as late as 5 am on Friday apparently. And anyways, stuff doesn't update during the day. So any updates today would come by late evening today, tomorrow, or Friday morning I guess

I know this thread is only for the 4/24-5/8 crew but...

I represent the DMV "thoroughly" and I am happy to see the DMV getting some "preparing for shipment" love. I am in the 5/13-5/27 date range but it looks like those folks are starting to see a little movement as well. Good luck to us all. :cool:
