    I ordered a space grey 42mm on the morning of the 26th, I figured this was going to take wayyyyy too long as I havent heard of anyone past the first couple minutes of ordering get those.

    I also ordered a Black sport wristband and a 42mm aluminum blue sport watch yesterday, their shipping times "may" and "june" respectively.

    Post your post launch updates here!

    Purchased the 42MM Space Black SS with Link Band on the 27th.

    (needed to try some of them on - which I did on Saturday the 25th - didn't actually get to try on that watch though - the Apple Store didn't have any) :(

    ETA - July (But, I'm pretty confident that once the link bracelets actually start to ship, there will be lots of them - that seems to be the holdup).

    Also purchased a Space Black Link on the 26th - Slated for July :(
    Hopefully the long shipment time slowed the number of orders and once they DO start shipping, we will see them early june?



    I can hope cant i?!

    Ordered an SS 42 Milanese on the 24th itself, June shipping and no movement so far (of course). I had preordered a Space Grey Sport 42 which just arrived today, but I've waited this long and now I'd prefer to wait a little longer for the Milanese.

    Ordered a 42mm SS Milanese Loop on April 25th. Of course, no movement or updates yet. "June" ship date. 42mm Milanese Loop seems to be moving pretty slowly, so I fully expect to wait until at least early June for mine.

    Ordered 38mm and 42mm SG Sports models on the 25th. 38mm shows a shipment for May/21-Jun/4, yet 42mm is stuck on the June shipment.. I doubt I'll see any movement for that until mid May.

    I ordered a 42mm SG April 22, status moved from processing to processing items a few days ago. Still shows available to ship June.

    Ordered the 38 SS with the classic leather band on the 25th. It arrived yesterday. If you want it now, that might be the on to go with.

    38 SS WSB - ordered Sunday 4/26, shipped Monday 4/27, delivering 4/29 (today!!) - Canada

    38 SG Sport - ordered 4/10 at 00:16 - never moved an inch, no updates, no emails - so I cancelled when the SS shipped.

    Seems like the Stainless Steel are shipping faster?

    I also waited to order until after launch. Mine was in on the 25th for a black 42mm sport and I'm guessing late May to early June will happen even though I just see "June" on my order page.
    If I'm remembering right my iPhone 6+ 128GB took about a month to show up and I ordered the same morning that preorders went live. They were a little early on the delivery compared to their estimate so I'm hopeful that I'll experience the same thing with the watch.

    I ordered a 42mm Space Gray Sport on the 24th because I was out of the country during pre-orders. Still says Processing and June delivery. I'm hopeful we get an update 1st week of May for end of May delivery. I would expect that Space Gray manufacturing has been ramped up quite a bit.

    Jon I'm thinking the same thing. They must be leaning heavily on their factories to get more of the SG sports made to meet demand

    They're definitely at least shipping in batches (if not manufacturing in batches). There was a waft of SS watches with various bands come in.

    It's pretty random - there could be a huge influx of SG watches any day - who knows?

    Returned my preordered (received on 4/24) white 38 sport to the Apple Store Monday - ordered a 38 SS Milanese combo, during that visit (4/27); I now have a ship estimate of 5/29-6/11.

    I wonder if it may move up, seems the 38's aren't as desirable (yes, it is a smaller watch and I own a 64 gold 6+) - as a 34 yo man with smaller wrists, the 42 seems like it would impede my wrist bones....

    I second this. I ordered a 38 SS with classic leather yesterday, late morning. Was charged overnight and received shipping notification this morning. Will be here tomorrow.

    TWO days from Apple to door. If you want one, this is the one that's shipping quick.

    I bought from a scalper today (even after starting a thread about how I wouldn't. :eek:) I caved. He/she got $97 above retail so now we're both happy. :D
