I know none of the Modern Buckle watch orders have been filled and I find it very odd that Apple aren't allowing separate band orders for this one at all. No "ships in August 2017," no orders whatsoever. Did that little, French tannery get swept away by a tornado? Was there an earthquake that took out the only road into town, rendering it impossible for trucks to carry out that precious, leathery cargo? Is Ashton Kutcher reviving Punk'd with this watch band as his first new gag? I mean, what is the deal? It feels great on and looks dressier than a sport band. It's not cheap, but Apple could still sell a ton of them if they'd only manufacture the things. At this rate, there will be comparable third party bands out for less money before Apple ships these. Very odd. Though, a good many supply issues with the launch in general have been a bit odd.
