    As soon as I got into the App Store at 12:01am, the SS Space Black 42mm showed me a shipping time of June. Was anyone else able to get an earlier shipping time? I know Macrumors posted that June was the initial shipping time made available. But just wanted to see if anyone else got lucky.

    Yes, I confirmed my order at 12:08 and was surprised by the June delivery date.

    Seems like there were some available early delivery dates but from reading through various forums - a lot of people who ordered SS Space Black received the June surprise. There are the few lucky ones that have an earlier date. I believe the current delivery has now gone to July!

    Just checked the U.S. store, the 42 has indeed slipped to July, the 38 is still June.

    Unless of course you are a celebrity who received a complimentary Edition for wearing it in public. (Drake at Coachella wearing an Edition)

    For ***** and giggles, I checked out ship times for Edition models after I ordered my SS, and some said July and August. I went back to bed after I ordered, and checked ship times again a few hours later, and they all said June. So who knows.

    I got in right away. I had favorited both link versions and at the time they where both 4-6 weeks.

    I ended up going with the plane ss link if anyone cares.:D

    I got in through the Apple Store App and had SS Space Black all set as a favorite but my check-out was delayed due to Apple Pay saying both my shipping and billing addresses weren't correct (even though they were) this pushed me to the 12:08 completion which by then the delivery was June.

    Both standard and Space Black SS with link bracelet had 4-6 week shipping time right off the bat (meaning nobody got a launch day delivery date), then shifted to June/July/etc.

    When I first saw June on my black SS, I was shocked, and thought maybe I should reconsider which one I wanted. Then after a minute or so, went ahead and ordered, then ordered my wife's... then ordered our extra bands (all separate orders just in case). Then I thought about "June" again (which could turn into July or worse) and ordered a 42mm SS to hold me over, which by then ended up being a May 13-27 date just like my wife's 38mm SS. At least we'll get those at the same time.

    Got my order in about 30 seconds after the store opened and got the 4 to 6 weeks shipping time. It went to June moments later

    You might want to check out the thread regarding multiple orders. I did exactly what you did but read that Apple is canceling any orders over (2) per Apple I.D. So if you have the SS Black pending for June and ordered (2) additional there is the chance they'll cancel one of your orders. Reference the thread on this forum about "how many per household"

    I actually just shared my chat convo in that thread. The rep I asked said that the limit was 2 per person per credit card (and I used a separate card for each of the 3). I know that it's very likely they are wrong, but that's what I was told.

    Nobody seems to have gotten the April 24th delivery date as both of the link bracelets (standard and Space Black) had a May 13-May 27ish delivery date at the start of preorder. Maybe it'll shift to an earlier date in the coming weeks (common with iPhone/iPad launches).

    I was on as soon as site went live and ordered SS space black link with 4-6 week delivery. I'm really hoping it will come forward but equally it's better than July!!!

    Interestingly when I went in to Apple Store for try on appointment today they didn't even have any of the space black to try on. Was one in cabinet to look at only.

    Cool, at least I know I wasn't late to order. I hear a lot of reps saying don't put too much stock into the estimated date as they are conservative estimates.

    This is true. Orders almost always ship earlier than the estimates. Makes sense, because lots of people cancel their orders and it makes everyone move up in the queue.
