    So after seeing so many people on here getting their watches within a week of ordering them, while i sit here waiting till June with no movement whatsoever, I'm ordering a second 42mm SS With Milanese Loop to see if out of some freak accident, it jumps the queue.

    There seems to be a bit of randomness going on with these deliveries. Almost like a lottery. Let's see what happens.

    At worst, I end up with a watch on each arm :D

    I done that and instantly regretted it so cancelled it a few hours after. Really don't need two watched nor have the money right now for two!
    I have a good delivery allocation so don't want to mess it up with a second watch I could possibly get at the same time

    I had three in mines. I cancelled one of them because I really didn't want the color. I regret doing so now. Oh well. I have two chances now.

    You won't jump the queue with the 42mm Milanese or any 42 SS for that matter.

    I was able to "jump the queue" as you put it. It all depends on the country. I had both of my initial orders processing since 4/10 (one just changed to pfs last night). I put in another order of the SS WSB in Japan and it shipped 2 days after ordering it.

    I've heard people from Canada and Australia doing the same so I'm assuming each country just has their own allocation.

    I also ordered a SS 42 Milanese on Friday (I'm in Canada) and I don't expect to receive it soon but hopefully within 2-3 weeks would be good... Although my April 10th 42 Space Grey is shipping today and arriving tomorrow, not sure what to do. I really do love the look of the SS with Milanese, everyone's opinion is different but I think it looks "premium".

    Orded a 42mm SS WSB on 4/25 early AM, no movement yet. Seems like I was just beyond there cut off for changing shipment estimates yesterday so its still June. Also ordered a 42 SG on 4/10 about 14 min after opening bell, its still may 13-27 and no charge. I'll keep whatever one comes first and cancel the other.

    Ordered a Sport pink band 42mm yesterday...no movement yet of course.

    Doubting I'll jump the queue. I think that was an anomaly last week and we won't be seeing anymore of that.

    I still have my 42mm SG Sport black that I ordered the day of the pre-order...set for end of May delivery.
