For the Irish, the Austrians, the late workers, and... The people who just don't trust the postal service with their address...?

For the people who will have to wait twice for their order.

Let's set up base camp for all the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth that will come tomorrow when deliveries begin?

Spain
And for the Spaniards too, right?:D

I ordered mine too late, the 13th 01:00am GMT, after finding I could use a freight forwarder.

SG 42mm for June, of course.

I'm not even sure if they are going to process my order till shipment, or is going to be cancelled silently again :rolleyes:

I didn't see any posts from Spain before, sorry! But if your Watch is going to have to wait for you as much as you're going to have to wait for it, you are welcome here. :p

I am hoping there will be no more cancellations, but if you are not shipping until June, you are going to have to wait a while to confirm. :( Maybe some others from your region will show up with earlier shipping dates and you can get an idea from that?

Got my dispatch notice, so now begins the big wait! Estimated to be with the Forwarder tomorrow, so I think I'll be lucky to have it Saturday.

Anyone got an April 23 delivery date? I think I saw one in the UK thread...

...And my Watch is with the courier for delivery to the PO Box, but it isn't there yet. They say "out for delivery", so I'm hoping I won't have to wait until tomorrow, but there's no guarantee.

Anyone else in the same boat?

Just collected mine from Parcel Motel! About to tear into it and join the fun. Hope the rest of you get to pick yours up soon!

Don't be disheartened by the lack of tracking information on the PM website; according to that, mine hadn't moved from the Depot since 1pm... And then I get the text.

So much excitement! :D

Dublin South. Delighted with how it all went! Can't believe I got it on the 24th.

Playing around with the Watch now-- my first time seeing/touching one in person (as opposed to pawing with the screen) and I'm very happy with it. Size is good, band (Sport White) is surprisingly premium feeling. I enabled Siri for the first time and it's very impressive so far.

Cheers, have fun with it now

I have no prior experience with PM so I don't know if this time of delivery is unusual or not. There was no queue when I got there, which I had kind of expected, since I thought a lot of texts would have gone out when the van had hit the PM.

Now I'm thinking that since it was marked as "Valuable Item",maybe they're not making the rounds with the other deliveries, and are coming in a single, separate Apple Watch van. If that's the case, it will take a while to get them all out. :(

Funnily enough I've never had anyone at parcel motel while I'm using it, and I use it regularly

I'd be surprised if they where on a separate van

I normally get a notification about 1am

Just have to wait up a bit

That's quite reassuring-- I went out dressed in the oldest, most ripped-up clothes I could find so that I wouldn't look like I was picking up anything valuable!

I would say yours will be along tonight considering that I got mine. What time did yours reach the depot in Dublin? Mine got there at 13.05, and got to my Motel at 21:50.
