I'm just wondering because I don't think I've seen anyone that ordered a Plain stainless or Space Black Stainless say they're actually getting theirs on launch day. I'm asking because it appears most resellers aren't actually getting their stock of SS watches until Friday or later and I wasn't sure if it was a repeat of the Series 0 Stainless launch where they just went up on the Apple store with delivery dates of a week+ after launch.

I was wondering this same question but for the Gold stainless steel version.

They must just be severely supply constrained with the Stainless models again. It almost instantly went past launch day when ordering at 12:01 and 3rd party sellers like Best Buy are telling pre-order holders that they haven't gotten their SS stock to even begin distribution. All signs also point to no in-store SS models available at Apple stores, but they will have Aluminum models in stock for walk ins.

44mm SS shipped, should arrive tomorrow. I did a "Hold for Pickup" at my local UPS facility because we've had a few packages to missing lately - don't want to take any chances.

I ordered two at the same time, just a few minutes midnight on order day. One SSSS and the other SBSS. SSSS I'm getting on launch day, the SBSS is due to arrive Sep 28 - Oct 2.

I walked into my local Best Buy and asked what their inventory status is for launch day for the S4, stainless steel, space black 44mm. They had ONE and reserved it for me. But they are not sure exactly when it will arrive.

Plus I have my Apple pre-order that is scheduled for 9.28 - 10.2.

Nice congrats! I went the B&H route, which I'm now regretting as it's going to be at least 2 weeks delayed...should have just gone the apple route since I was already awake haha

Thanks! Ya I always order from Apple. I understand wanting to order from B&H to save on taxes but I live in NYC so I don’t get that benefit (I actually live a block away from B&H haha).

My 44 mm space black was slated for September 28th through October 5 for a delivery, and I know received a confirmation email late last night that I will be receiving it today.

Bottom line: Apple tends to under promise and over deliver.
