So I ordered a Milanese loop strap in the early hours of this morning to go with the 42mm SS BSB I ordered. It said "dispatched 7-8 weeks".

7-8 hours later and it's already being shipped to me!

Which I'm slightly annoyed about because I've changed my mind and ordered a 42mm SS Link, which is quoting dispatch times of 2-3 weeks. (The BSB was quoting 4-5 weeks.)

Which one has shipped, the band or the watch?

Ahhh, ok. Lucky! My 42mm SS WSB just updated to 2-3 Weeks as well! (17-23 June.) Hopefully it will get here sooner!

Well, I guess I'll get to see the Milanese, but I'll almost certainly return it immediately as I won't want an extra band if I'm getting the Link.

Decent delivery estimate on the Link, though. Everything else still showing 4-5 weeks. Though at this point I think these estimates are just random numbers!

Definetly! A lot more seem to be showing 2-3 Weeks now, including the SS BSB + SS WSB, even though some people ordered earlier have the same ones. Those dates are a worst case scenario and I suspect we will be seeing our watches in a week or two.

Are you in the UK? Or USA? did you order the 42mm Milanese band? I'm keen but was put off by the 7/8 week wait list

Mine is due to ship in the next 1-3 days, but I'm away during the delivery estimate :( Did not expect a drastic change like this, of course I am happy though :)
