    Hey friends

    I ordered an apple watch with my order confirmed at 12:10 am on preorder day and it is still processing. I couldn't stand it so I paid $450 for a 38mm white sport off craigslist and funny enough, i feel lucky to have gotten it for this cheap as most people are asking $800 out here in la (jerks).

    Just wanted to get that off my chest. When my 42mm milanese arrives, my wife gets this.

    $800 for a 38mm white sport? While tempting, I think I will stick with keeping mine on my wrist.

    Why didn't you try to order a 38mm sport white from Apple? They seem to be shipping quickly. Ditto the green and blue sport.

    I ordered a 42mm SG Sport and was in the first shipping wave but didn't get it on launch day. I found a CL seller that was selling one. He was asking $800...I bought it for $750. He texted me 2 hours later that he would buy mine back for $750 once I got it in.

    Still driving me nuts though that mine has not changed to Shipping.

    Good i just waited. I don't trust people on the internet selling stuff unless it has a return guarantee.

    Not to rain on your parade but you could've ordered a green or blue band for $349, got it in a couple days and then ordered a white band for $49.

    Thanks for posting.
    The asking prices are high, so it is interesting to see what they eventually go for.

    My favorite was the guy who posted that he is on the May 13-27 delivery window and is creating a list for all the people interested in buying from him when he eventually gets it.

    The watch certainly is in demand, but this isn't the gold iPhone 6+ days.

    I think this is MUCH crazier than the iPhone 6+ gold days.

    ----------

    Yep! I was happy to do it too! but really, if I paid full retail +tax plus overnight shipping it would be about $450
