Is this fast? When should I expect delivery? The June 5th estimate seems a little far if it's already preparing.

The 38mm's always seem to dispatch fast. I don't think any 38mm is in short supply.

Ordered mine 11pm on a Wednesday night, received it by Friday. Less than 48 hours later.

I'd expect it tomorrow.

why the hell is apple still making 38 if its in short demand? i would assume they would shift production to 42 by now.

Quite possibly a stockpile from the initial production. I'd assume a lot of the lines are also tuned and cased for 38mm production, it can take awhile to convert lines to make larger watches. I'm not really sure why Apple might have put as much emphasis on 38 as they did, the fashion trends over the last 15 years has been larger watches. Quite frankly I'm surprised they didn't do 40/44mm as the split.

arriving tomorrow (assuming UPS doesn't pull their "recipient wasn't home" bs), 48 hours from ordering isn't bad! :D

nice. I think blue might be one of the less popular bands from what I've read here.

That's why I ordered it. I think the black sports band looks really nice on the aluminum sport models. I'm going to buy a BSB to on it.

All the 42s except for the Space Black Link are 2-3 weeks now, the SBLB is 5-6 weeks. Times are improving weekly. I imagine ordering a 42 with a 2-3 week might ship in a week to 10 days if not less.

I ordere a 38 sport for my wife on May 9th and it just shipped last night. So it seems they just did catch up from initial demand.
