It's not all bad for us in the UK. We don't need to get up at a ridiculous time. Pre-orders go live at 0801 BST. We'll have to wait and see if we are able to reserve but I don't think it'll be possible.

I'm getting (hopefully) the 38mm Space Grey in the Black Sport Band.

What are you all getting and what are your plans?

It's even better for me, I'm currently in Egypt, so 9am local time.

Just a bit worried that I won't be able to get to the UK website here...

Ever since they were first announced I've wanted the 38mm Sport with the green band. I do a lot of travelling, climbing, etc so a lighter watch is the perfect choice for me. Plus, if it does get badly scratched at least I haven't spent too much money on it.

The only negative - I have to wait until next week to order (my pay day) :mad: Really worried I won't be able to get one on release day!

I'm currently on holiday in Costa Rica, so I'm going to have to get up at 1am and hopefully preordering a 38mm Space Grey with the Black Sport Band.

42mm stainless steel with black sport band. I need to leave for work by 8:15 at the latest so I hope it goes smoothly, or I won't have a very productive morning.

Yeah, a sport band sounds good considering what you do. Ouch. Yeah. I have a feeling you'll have to wait a while longer if you can't pre-order tomorrow.

I'm still stuck between SS Links and SS Milanese :( Someone make my mind up for me?

And if the SS Links is on back order I don't know whether to just default to Milanese or to go SS Black Sport Band and pick up the Links later on.

I've never obsessed over a decision more than this.

It won't charge you until shipping anyways and it will probably ship around your pay day so you might be down £xxx if you miss it by a day or so but I would ore-order now tbh mate

That's true. Money isn't taken straight away, only when it's shipped.

Hopefully will get up at 7:30, make myself a coffee, and preorder a 42mm white Sport for April 24th delivery.

(As if it's going to be that easy...)

Still undecided between sport black band or as with black band.

I'm thinking I'll pre order both on separate orders, visit an Apple Store try them both on and cancel one of the orders.

I've just noticed this thread mentions GMT, are we not on BST now? It starts at 8:01am BST right?

Just want to be sure, as I've been out of the country for a while now.

I am looking to buy the Space Grey Sport 42 mm but I would be happy with the Silver Sport and white band.

I hope the pre order is smooth.
