    I would absolutely love to know what the hold up is. Zero movement on my 42mm SS with black leather loop. I'm so glad I preordered it at 3am on the 10th.

    For the nth time, there has been no shipments to anyone's knowledge on either Leather Loop or Modern Buckle watches.

    Yes, it sucks, but you're not alone on this one.

    There's your hold up.

    Lack of sufficient band supply seems to be a major issue.

    I can deduct that from the forums, but I'm just saying I would like an official reason from Apple.

    I feel the pain as a Leather Loop orderer.

    i would love to know too. i cancelled my order of 42 mm SG BSB so someone else can get a watch. this product "launch" has made me look at apple another way and it will be a long good time before i buy anything else from them. they are really going to let a ton of loyal customers down.

    And you're not going to get one here, because none of us work for Apple.

    Agreed.

    I cancelled my 42mm SG to not take it from another person too.

    It takes a few months to raise the Apple cows needed for their special leather.

    Just be glad u didn't order the modern buckle. Individual bands are not a even being sold. Not a good sign for anyone who ordered a watch with one.

    Why? The watch they ordered comes with a band. Waiting a bit longer for a different band isn't a big deal.

    Exactly, it's a personalised device which is going to be on your wrist most of the day so it's important - in most people's opinion - to get a band which is most suited to your personal preferences.
