    Anyone else place their orders this week and have received shipping info?

    I ordered 2 watches on Sunday night (April 19), a 38mm SS Classic for my wife, 42mm SB SS Link for me. Was given "4-6 weeks" on the 38, and "July" on the 42mm.

    Well, this morning had a UPS email stating delivery tomorrow (Friday, launch day) for the 38mm. Indeed, Apple charged my card overnight.

    This was quite the surprise, actually. Anyone else with late orders getting a launch-day delivery?

    I've seen many people with orders in the past week already get shipping info.

    I ordered mine 8 days ago, nothing. (Not to mention the poor souls who ordered at 3 AM and still haven't gotten anything.)

    Wow. You are about to be hated upon. Lol. Consider yourself very lucky as there are thousands that ordered within 5 minutes of launch that have no movement.

    I'd go buy a lottery ticket if I were you! :D

    I wonder why mine got shipped and others didn't? It is the model (38mm SS Classic Buckle)? That'd be my guess. Only other options are 1) just random luck (unlikely) or 2) I'm a pretty good Apple customer, with a lot of business to them over the last year (less likely, but maybe not impossible?). Who knows...

    I ordered the 42mm SS Black Sports Band on the 20th and have not heard a peep and expect it to remain that way for a few weeks.

    I have to say that I find this all very confusing about priority of orders.
    Mine hasn't moved since 8.02 UK time on the 10th plus.......I ordered a 2 meter cable on the 20th April which is still processing whilst other guys that ordered cables on the 21st have had theirs shipped

    Apple obviously hate me

    The 38mm Stainless Steel with Classic Band appears to be the model of choice for those wanting to get it quickly, perhaps because it is fairly plain looking. That said, that's the model I got for myself. I have a Milanese Loop band on order, as well.

    Still don't get that. I have two on order. And no idea when I'm getting them. Maybe it's the style band some of you are ordering. Cause I have a while sport 42mm and brown leather loop on order. Nothing has changed in my status.

    Good to know. Anyone order this model very recently (last day or two) that got shipping info?

    Looks like its only the 38mm SS with classic leather buckle. Haven't seen any other models ordered late that are shipping now.

    Word. I don't begrudge him though, in fact good on him for not having to deal with the stress the rest of us have gone through.

    Only 1 of the 2 watches I ordered are shipping, and this is for my wife. I couldn't be happier; she asks for nothing, and does everything. To have this as a surprise for her means the world to me; mine is still in "July" status.

    I ordered a 38mm Silver Aluminum Sport with blue sport band on Thursday at 11:30am EST and it is scheduled to be delivered on Monday.

    It seems like the blue, white, and green bands are least popular, so if you want it NOW, that's the way to go.

    FYI: when you add it to your cart in will say scheduled to ship in June, but it will update in about a day (assuming that the stock hasn't been depleted by us eager ones).

    I hope you are right. I ordered a blue, white and green banded sport watches. Hoping that Monday one of them will charge on my card.

    I think it just depends on the watch ordered. Apparently they have more 38mm than 42mm available and sport watches with blue or green bands. The modern buckle watches started with 4-6 weeks availability and it doesn't look like any have shipped so must be a problem with bands. The 38mm SS with white sport band or milanese band seem to be more available as well. I'm waiting for June for my 38mm SS with pink modern buckle so not looking for any miracles.
