First ever Apple Watch I've owned is on it's way to me
Mine has been shipped too! I just read this and manually checked the status, but I haven't received a notification yet.
PS: Space gray with gray band, non-LTE (we don't have them), Spain.
You got the same Watch as me then Finland here.
EDIT: Shipping info received by DHL. Coming from the Netherlands on monday. Woohoo.
So jelly. Hmh.
Processed at PRAGUE - CZECH REPUBLIC - DHL Express confirmed delivery for tomorrow
Mine from the netherlands
I have spoken to another Apple Advisor on live chat: “... I can confirm that the first batch for the Apple S3 watch sold out very very quickly and yours is the next batch that is available. I fully understand how fustrating this is as you completed checkout 2 minutes after release, but the first batch has sold out before you completed the checkout...”.
I asked ‘how many units comprise a batch’, ‘whether this was a UK batch’, and ‘did the general public have access to this batch at the same time as telephone providers, etc’.
The advisor responded with “... I cannot give you an answer for that, but I do know there were thousands of people on at the time of day preordering...”, and “Yes, it was available to the general public. There would be a certain amount available for UK stores and online.”
I ordered via the iOS Apple Store App, and cannot understand how an entire ‘batch’ of this configuration was the only configuration unavailable for a 22/9 delivery date. Any thoughts?
Mine comes from Milano, Italy (to Switzerland)
Just had a ready for pickup notification. Obviously it’s not really ready until tomorrow though. Haha.
to those suffering from poor series 3 stainless steel availability: i‘m from germany and i ordered a series 3 stainless steel with milanaise at 9:03 and got oct 11-17 delivery estimate. i‘m just as annoyed by that as you are. but what can you do...? we‘ll get them eventually.
Also just had a ready for pick up notification. Gently tempted to give the store a ring and beg them to allow me to get it tonight.
I did write a post this morning but not sure where it went.
Got text from UKmail just before 9am to say watch to be delivered tomorrow with tracking link. Apple Store app also now showing as dispatched as link to tracking. Initial tracking was blank then showed it was at Hinckley (this always reminds me of Erin Brockowitz!) but at 12.39 it reach Ryton.
Anyone know if UKMail give you a delivery window on the day of delivery?
Not a hope in hell and definitely 'more than their job's worth!'
It’s annoying I am sure but I expected that - I too had mine favourited and it immediately showed delivery in October. I even ordered a Hermes just to get it quicker - even that isn’t due for delivery until Monday at the earliest.
If you can’t wait then go to an Apple store tomorrow.
In the UK at least, stainless steel availability was pretty good... for in-store pickup. I don't think any 42mm were available for guaranteed launch day delivery (though I'm sure some will arrive tomorrow), but the Milanese Loop was available for launch day in-store pickup for hours. The Space Black Milanese was available for launch day pickup for days!
OK. Received notification for pickup tomorrow at Apple Store Odysseum Montpellier
Meh. Now Apple site is saying my Watch is arriving on the 26th, not on the 25th. This sucks
Lets be fair - it would be hard to arrive on Monday unless it ships tomorrow. And I think if it was to be able to ship tomorrow it would have been shipped TO arrive tomorrow.
Disappointing but expected I would say. I don’t expect mine to arrive on Monday - more likely Tuesday or Wednesday.
It has shipped already, it has been processed at the DHL facility in Brussels, but still, it shows tuesday. Which is weird.
Finally ordered mine... today
I'm the only one to blame as I really couldn't make up my mind on which model to replace my S0. It will be the same, aluminium 42mm, GPS only. Delivery in 3-5 business days, that is, sometime next week (27-29 September)
mines done the same journey. Ironically I think it's now further away. I'm hoping it arrives tomorrow morning as I have to go out in the afternoon.
Not too bad a wait! Am waiting til 9-16 October for a 42mm gold aluminium model ordered on launch day. However my 38mm ordered a minute or so before comes tomorrow. Not sure what size I need but hopefully if the 38mm fits well I can cancel the 42mm.
Closer for me! I think. Looks like Hinckley is near Birmingham and Ryton is by Newcastle.
It just got better: delivery date updated to 26 September.
Yes they do. UKMail are really good actually. You can track (aka stalk) the driver on his route too which is pretty addictive. Enjoy!

Anyone else awake?
