Ordered 2 series 5 cellular today. Does anyone know why there is a delay on the shipping until the end of the month when other Items arrive in a few days?

For NZ where we have no Apple Stores they get shipped from China - I think that might be the case for on-line orders for all countries. If it is they tend to show as preparing for shipment until the day before delivery, then tracking shows they are almost in-country the night before delivery.

Of course it could also be supply-chain constraints due to closed factories.

Mines cellular 5 too. So you actually got yours quite a bit earlier than expected. That’s good. I am selling my series 4 tomorrow so will be without a watch until I get the new one. It will be like I have lost my arm. Mine is still due for 30th-31st. I am worried something will happen though regarding the virus and lockdowns etc and I won’t get it :-(

Well my Apple tracker says it’s shipped but DHL tracking says it’s not been given to them yet (in Netherlands). Been like that for 3 days. If the UK goes into lockdown which I think is imminent hopefully I will get my £1100 back because they won’t be able to deliver it.
