    Hi, all. I'm new here. Just ordered a 40mm Hermès single-tour in Fauve on Oct. 1st and received a shipping estimate of Oct. 29th-Nov. 5th. I haven't seen any progress on my order, yet, though I'm curious if anyone else who received a similar estimate has? I will post here as I receive updates from Apple, and I hope other folks will, too. Thanks everyone!

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    Ordered Sep 29. Same delivery estimate...no movement yet. Waiting on 2 SS/Milanese (a 40mm and a 44mm).

    In my experience, Apple usually provides conservative estimates and actual delivery often beats the estimate. However, these things seem to be in high demand (relative to manufacturing rate...particularly the stainless) so who knows. I suspect we'll start to see some activity next week.

    If you keep an eye on the Oct 22-Oct 29 thread, that may provide some indication on the relative timing of Oct 28-Nov 5 group.

    Thanks for your response! Around 6:40pm Central Time today I noticed that the status has switched to preparing to ship! No bank account, email, or text notification activity, yet, but I would guess those will post soon. Can't wait to get my watch! :)

    That’s encouraging. No movement for me yet.

    I had one on order for delivery early to mid November. I kept checking apple store stock in the meantime. Last night I was able to reserve one and picked it up today. Keep checking your local stores if there is one near you.

    PS series 4 is a huge improvement over series 3.

    My 44mm SBSS with Sports Band that I ordered on 29 September moved to Preparing to Ship today.

    I now have bank activity and shipping notifications from Apple to expect my watch on the 25th, as of 12:01am Central Time (10/19). Woot!

    Update...of the 2 watches I ordered (noted above), the 40mm is “Preparing to ship” and my card has been charged. The 44mm is still “in progress.”
