Ordered mine at 2:22 PM (Eastern Time - 22 minutes after keynote ended)
Titanium 44mm with Leather Link (Baltic Blue)
Ship date: Oct. 14th to 21st

I had a Series 5 Titanium 44mm last year as well. Heres why I decided on Titanium again:

- Less noticeable scratches. Compared to my Stainless Steel Series 4, my Series 5 Titanium held up much better. No major scratches from the naked eye. With my SS Series 4, it had lots of tiny scratches on it after a few weeks. Nothing major, and I was able to buff it out with a stainless steel polish kit, but I didn't want to have to polish my watch every month or so. My Titanium after a year almost looked brand new.

- Looks stunning. I know some people say the Titanium looks like the silver aluminum, but pictures don't do it justice. You need to see it in person. Titanium has a nice silver finish that is brushed and has enough reflection to give it a luxurious look to it. Looks very upscale when compared to aluminum.

- Rare. Its cool to know that the Titanium models are more rare when compared to the other models. Apple only sells the Titanium on Apple.com and only at there flag-ship Apple Stores. They can't be bought from official 3rd party retailers either. I have only come across a couple people wearing a titanium model out in public. Everyone else I see are wearing the aluminum models followed by the stainless steel model.

Ordered the Apple Watch Edition GPS + Cellular, 44mm Space Black Titanium Case with Black Leather Link. 13 Oct - 20 Oct by Standard Delivery. If you want faster delivery the older bands will speed up delivery. The new leather link bands are taking longer but I believe will be worth the wait.

Yes for me I don't like the leather link and always been using the sports loop band so I went with that route.

They do.

I ordered a 44mm Space Black Titanium w/ the charcoal braided loop around 1:30 CDT. Delivery is Sept 25th-29th.

I also swear I added monthly AC+, but I don’t see it on my order. May have to buy it later.

44mm Titanium Silver with Blue braided sport loop. USA. Got dates Oct 14-21. But Apple is known to have shipped earlier than that in the past.

I added AC+ in my order. I did replace my Nike AW2 three times. Two with broken glas, one with a bad battery. The last one has no issues since 927 days.

Coming from a SS AW4 my credit card was ready for ceramic, but we all know what happened... 🥺😢😅

Decided not to go with SS again and wanted something new, ordered the 44mm Titanium Watch Edition with Inverness Green-Sportloop. Delivery on 28th of September (Germany).

Exciting. 🥳

Tbh the titanium seems like even a better deal now with the ~$100 difference over the top models stainless steels now since TI includes another sport band and the POWER ADAPTER. lol

Wish you could choose the sport band color. but I get why they don’t let you, the nub matches the watch.

Went with Titanium again also, delivers September 25-29th. Titanium has been my favorite finish so far.

Perfect shipping date.

If Apple doesn’t include this sapphire display on the stainless, then I might be operating to the black titanium. At least that’s the rumor so far, but we will know more shortly.

Do we get the second band this year? I know last year we did, and it was listed in What's in the Box. This year What's in the Box does not list the extra band, but it does list the power adapter.

Does the titanium is space black come with the DLC coating on it? I currently have the stainless and it has never scratched. I ordered the titanium and don’t want to get scratches on it.
