    I have been looking for the link that breaks down when our Apple Watch was made, factory, etc... I would like to also see how many of our watches were recently manufactured before shipping to us...

    I just received shipping notice this morning for my 42 SS BSB Apple Watch. I checked my support profile on Apple's site and it already had the watch listed there along with my serial. When I looked it up on that site it was listed as a week 16. That means it was manufactured sometime between April 13 - 19.

    I'm curious when others were made.

    Week 14 means it was manufactured sometime between March 30th and April 5th.

    What band did you order yours with? I went with the BSB because I thought it would be easy to get. Then ordered the blue leather loop after trying it on in the store.

    Easiest way to find the date is to go to the activity app and look for the time they tested the watch.

    Can you explain how to do this?

    EDIT: I see the first day it shows activity but nothing says "tested". April 19 here.

    It shows an activity reading a few weeks back (or a week in my case).

    Week 14 for my 42mm Green Sport. Ordered at :03 and arrived on the 24th. Interesting that Apple didn't start mass production of these until just a few weeks ago.
