    Well, I suppose strictly speaking, 4-6 weeks from today covers the first half of June, and "June" covers all of June.

    Not sure what you are asking. Generally when people say 4-6 weeks here they are referring to their April 10 order estimation of 4-6 weeks (May 13-27).

    So if i ordered a 4-6weeks watch today it probably wouldnt get here faster then. That kinda sucks

    Im just assuming june means beginning of june for me since its was ordered within less than an hour of the apple store going up

    Apple has publicly stated that they are overquoting shipping times as not to disappoint anyone with shipments outside their estimate.

    Are there any watches actually showing as shipping in 4-6 weeks in the Apple Store? Last I checked, they were all saying "Ships in May" or "Ships in June."

    1st order is a black stainless steel, which gave may dates as soon as the store wen up.

    I ordered 30mins after. Not much of a chance to come early lol.

    And the W/B sport band SS are 4 weeks, only 38mm tho

    And im speaking about the us store

    I actually put in an order for a second watch today, a 38mm SS with Milanese loop and to my surprise the shipping estimate was still 4-6 weeks. However, checking the status, instead of the 5/13-5/27 window it is 5/29-6/11. But it is/was still in the store as 4-6 weeks

    I'd order 3 watches on 10 Apr in the following order.

    1) 42mm Black SS (14min after the race start)
    2) 38mm SS pink leather (18min)
    3) 38mm SS Milanese loop (21min)

    and they give me the following expected deliver period respectively.

    1) June
    2) 4-6 weeks
    3) 13-27 May

    And now.

    1) still waiting
    2) nothing change
    3) arrived on 24 Apr!

    So, in my case, 4-6 weeks is a big big difference then Jun / 13-27 May.

    I don't know about ordering right now, but yes, on pre-order day, anyone who ordered after the first (very) few minutes, got 4-6 weeks. I have not heard of anyone getting a general "May" delivery date.

    Yes, yesterday I ordered two more watches. One white stainless steel 38mm white sport band, and one 38mm stainless steel black sport band. Both showed at the time I ordered as 4-6 weeks. While the 42mm simply said June.

    I have just ordered the ss 38 & black sports as really like the sg that came Friday and convinced I will wear it a lot. It's on the 4-6 week timescale.
