    Did you get a date when it was in may? I ordered a 42mm and a 38mm. Originally both in June. Then Monday morning 38mm says June 4th and 42 May 20th. Later monday afternoon, the 38mm shipped and no further movement on 42.. I was happy about it but the one that shipped was my wifes and not mine

    Read it three times, still not sure what the subject line means.

    Do you mean you got it earlier than expected? If so that seems good.

    Do you mean different configurations ship at different speeds? If so that's pretty well known at this point.

    As you probably know, location is key. Where are you?

    Overview of shipping pecking order:

    In general:

    38mm ship quicker than 42mm

    Sport bands ship quicker than higher priced bands (applies only to SS, obviously)

    Alum Sport ships faster than Space Gray Sport (is this the gray case or the black band's fault? No one can know I don't think)

    Blue, green ship faster than white, but now white is shipping relatively quickly

    There seem to be more Sports shipping than SS, but that may just be a factor of how many Sports were ordered vs SS

    Combine to your heart's content ;)

    Ok, so you were in the first ordering stages as far as SS is concerned. Seems about right since they are supposedly semi-inflating ship windows and shipping sooner if at all possible.

    Sports (esp colors ((except pink and space grey) are shipping faster than any model.
