Ordered last night and "preparing for shipment" already.

    I originally ordered a 42mm Space Grey Sport w/Black Band on 4/10 at around 3:00pm EST. I was given a June delivery window. There's been no activity on the watch since. Card hasn't been charged. No Email of Death. Nothing.

    Last night, I decided to order a 38mm Aluminum Sport w/Blue Band to see if it would process and arrive before my 42mm Space Gray Sport. I placed the order around 9:00pm EST. I also received a June delivery window.

    I entered both order numbers into the "Deliveries" app and have been checking them every hour today.

    About 10 minutes ago, I checked and noticed that while the 42mm Space Gray Sport still says "Processing Items," the 38mm Aluminum Sport now says "Preparing For Shipment."

    I double checked on Apple's site and it showed "Preparing For Shipment" as well. I also checked my card statement and I was charged for the 38mm Aluminum Sport. But not for the 42mm Space Gray Sport yet.

    The wife didn't even really want an Apple Watch as she uses her Polar FT7 for working out and everything. I've wanted my watch since I first read rumors about them. Now she's rubbing it in because it looks like her watch will arrive way before mine.

    Quick update on this.

    I just checked again and now the blue sport is showed as "Shipped" and I have a tracking number.

    Meanwhile my 42mm Space Gray sport is stuck in "Processing Items" limbo.

    I actually thought of doing that, ordering another watch since there was zero update since April 10, 12:05 AM order, except the EOD.

    I was sure if I ordered last night, I should have got it by tomorrow, especially since the talk of June shipments arriving before April24-May8th ones.

    Glad to hear my assumption was correct.

    Edit: I got charged, preparing shipping today, about 3 hrs ago, still not sure if I will get it by tomorrow.

    Does anyone else have a "Pre-Sign for Delivery" button on their "Shipped" page? I definitely don't have one on mine - not saying OP is trolling but kind of weird he has one and I don't.

    I have one on mine as well, which is next to the "Track Shipment" button. 42mm Aluminum White Band.

    Maybe it's a Stainless Steel vs. Aluminum thing then. My apologies to OP for insinuating he was trolling :eek:

    I ordered the 42mm blue sport this morning to see if it would beat my 42mm SG. No movement or charges for either.

    Seems that the 38mm is getting more movement bc it's less popular....

    I'm going to try to order the leather loop or classic buckle and see if it ships faster than my SG sport model.

    Yeah, I guess so. I haven't been charged though yet and my order is still processing as of a couple minutes ago. Don't think I'll get mine tomorrow.

    42mm SS Milanese Loop ordered at 12:05, basically when the Apple Store app came up finally haha. Aw well

    No, it won't... My 42 SS black leather loop has been in limbo since I ordered @ 12:03 PST on April 10th. No charges, no email, no nothin'. Don't waste your time.

    You need to stop whatever you're doing and go watch "Half Baked."
