    I have a question. Let's say the watch I ordered was sold out for apr 24 delivery date. But I still order or pre-order it and the new delivery date is, for example, may 28. Is there a chance that the delivery date gets moved up and delivered sooner?

    You ask a question that none of can really answer. It all depends on how quickly they can churn out the watch in quantities.

    No problem. Planning to order the watch I want regardless of the delivery date and was just curious.

    I'm afraid when I'll order the SB SS tomorrow, even right in the beginning, it will be a long journey until it ships, just like with another Space Black product by apple... the New Mac Pro! It took them 8 weeks to ship that thing to me, even though I ordered straight away!
    :eek:

    I've seen Apple provide a future ship date, only to beat it by a week or two, so it's all estimates. Best not to cancel and let it ride, or you may find yourself at the back of the line again, considering there are no walk-in purchases for a while.

    If many people order two then cancel one after trying them on in store, delayed dates could move up quickly.

    In past launches, people have been told that their product will be delivered on a certain date (like two weeks passed the original expected date) only to be pleasantly surprised that the tracking info was updated and the product will be delivered sooner. So yeah, it's possible.

    It is possible. I haven't had any experience with Apple moving shipping dates, as I have not pre-ordered from them, but I know with Motorola they did. I was supposed to get my 2014 Moto X 8-10 days after I placed my order, but I got it in 5 days. I think it is a possibility for Apple to do that.

    This.

    Most Apple products that I have ordered have been delivered on the date promised but a "few" came early, so you never know.

    How much watch inventory will be reflected by the post here, tomorrow. Hope Apple has their "stuff" together and everyone is happy!

    I guess this pretty well answers the questions about inventory!
