    To those of us who are the fatithful and were up when the preorders went live (especially my fellows here in EST who were up at 3AM like myself) what watch did you pick and what's your expected ship date? Myself I went for Apple Watch Sport in Space Grey 42MM. I've got a ship date of 4 - 6 weeks in my confirm email.

    Via the iPhone Apple Store App at 3:02am, 42mm SS with black sport and 42mm Sport with black sport, both confirmed for 4/24 - 5/8.

    I have them saved in favorites and Apple Pay setup. I was able to buy them both in less than 30 seconds each (did two separate orders to be safe).

    Refreshed the Apple Store website like crazy at 3:01 AM and when it wasn't up by 3:03 AM I switched to the store app on my iPhone and thanks to ApplePay, I clicked on my favorited watch, used TouchID, and I received the conformation email at 3:04 AM showing April 24th to May 8th delivery dates w/ standard shipping.

    I bought the 42mm space gray AppleWatch.

    I was up at 3:00 am (EST) and I got my order in for the 42mm SS with the Black sports band, and delivery estimated 4/24/15 to 5/8/15, then I also order another band the M Loop band and that delivery estimated is 4/29/15 to 5/12/15

    ----------

    I did the samething I had my computer ready, but after I saw it hit 3:01, the website was not up so I I had my phone by me and had the Apple Store App open and it was the first to go live
    Got my comfimation email at 3:07am

    3:10 38mm SS with brown modern buckle - May 13-27
    3:21 42mm SS with black sport band - May 13-27

    but my two extra sport bands will be here before that, so I can stare at them for weeks...

    42mm SS black classic buckle ordered 3:19am EDT, delivery 4/24 - 5/8.

    Had ordered a 42mm SS milanese earlier but slipped to May during ordering process. Ordered this instead and canceled the first order as I figured I can always buy a different band if I am not happy with the classic buckle.

    Couldn't get on the store for the first two minutes on Safari or in the Apple Store app. Got it working in Firefox and placed an order at 8:04am for the Apple Watch Sport 42mm with Green Sport Band.

    Placed orders at 8:08am and 8:09am for a 2m charging cable and a Black Sport Band respectively.

    Apple Watch shipping 24/4 to 8/5. Charging cable shipping 7-10 days (so I expect it before the Watch). Black Sport Band shipping 2-4 weeks.

    Ordered at 3:03am through the App, I ordered the space grey sport edition, to my surprise it had shipping of May 13-27th. Not sure how many they had, but it couldn't have been many, especially seeing how the Apple website didn't come up until around 10mins after 3.

    I wake up every morning for work at 2:00; got up 15 min earlier made sure all my info was accurate in the Apple Store app. Took about 1 min to order once 2:01 came. I was shocked it was that easy. 4/24- 5/8 delivery.

    UK here.

    Wanted the SS link bracelet first & foremost, and white sport band for workouts, on the 42mm Watch. Ordered at 8.01 when the app went live. I ordered the one with the sport band as it was for delivery 24/4 to 8/5, whereas the link bracelet version was 4-6 weeks.

    Then went to order the link bracelet separately, expecting it to be 4-6 weeks as well - but oddly by itself it delivers 24/4 to 11/5!

    So should get watch with both bands at about the same time #⌚️

    Just had a try-on appointment in Covent Garden - it's very, very nice indeed!
