    I'm just trying to get a log. Mine went to preparing for shipment last night, but I'm trying to gauge how long I would have to wait. Did anyone's ship the next day? Thanks!

    Mine went to PfS Friday morning, shipped out about 6-7 hours later. Was in my hands the following Monday morning.

    Less than 24 hours. Went to PFS over night, and by 4pm the watch was shipped.

    It went to 'preparing to dispatch' at about 3pm UK time, and then it dispatched at about 9pm UK time.

    Usually the status goes from ''processing'' to preparing for shipment.

    15 hours or so for me. Billed and moved to prepared for shipping late at night, went to shipped the following afternoon. Many others in my same batch got their shipment notifications much sooner.

    It is random based on when UPS gets it to the first location to scan which will differ by city and by day....but has not impact on time of day you'll get your watch from what I have seen.

    If you are billed and move to PFS at night, you'll almost assuredly get your watch within 48 hours...if billed in the AM, you'll probably get the watch within 36 hours (following day)

    For the Apple Watch it takes 24 hours, but for the bands it takes longer than that.

    WTH. I already have a 42SS BSB that I have had for over 3 weeks. Ordered the SS link and CC charged after a couple of weeks yesterday and status moved to "preparing for shipment" May 22-June 1. Then today it moves back to "processing items". Anyone experienced this with either the watch or a band?

    Preparing for shipment late last night (maybe sometime after midnight), then shipped notification around 11:30 am. Says it'll be delivered tomorrow before 3:00 pm.

    My 42mm white Sport, ordered April 30, changed to "preparing for shipment" sometime overnight (I guess), and I got an email at 5:53 PM today that my Watch has shipped. Should be here sometime tomorrow! So I'd guess it took my Watch somewhere between 12 and 20 hours; definitely less than a full day, though.

    Originally? Yes. But once you get the Preparing for Shipment, it means they have a Watch designated as yours here in the States.

    Preparing for Shipment -> Shipped takes anywhere from a few hours to 24 hours. Mine was approximately 12. Got the PFS just before midnight, the Shipping notice around noon and it was delivered the next day.

    Happened to me LOL. I ordered a black classic and black sport and the black classic went PFS yesterday morning (also charged my card). The black sport was still processing. Checked this morning, classic went back to processing.
