    We got the address error too, which was super annoying. Were you using the Apple Store app?

    I woke up at 2:56, and by 3:03, the Apple watch 42mm with Milanese loop was already delayed to 4-6 weeks. I would have ordered a different model, but everyone of them were 4-6 freaking weeks.

    I ordered just past midnight here on the mobile app as the website was still down. I got a 4/24-5/8 ship date. Did anyone get a for sure 4/24 date? Wondering if they are just not sure when things will be ready.

    I was ordering with the Apple Store app and ApplePay and selected it to be shipped to work. Then it changed my billing address. Not sure if the order would fail when they tried to bill the card, so I did another one without ApplePay but still in the Apple Store app and it let me have different billing and shipping addresses. Canceled the first this morning.
    I also filed a bug report thru apple's bug reporting system for developers.

    yeah apple really dropped the ball with stock for the watches. Almost seems like they had no stock, they are building them as the orders came in. No way it should have slipped to months shipping time within a few minutes of launch. This isn't an iPhone after all.

    No sense pre-ordering if they're only delivering in June... Crazy

    It's funny how the numbers work out. The 24th is 14 days from the 10th and the 8th is 14 days from the 24th. So I think they just gave themselves a nice 1 month buffer for delivery. I think most people will get it on the 24th but if some deliveries are late or there aren't enough units then it doesn't lead to users complaining.

    I have heard this every year for many years now. You would think people would just accept it as normal by now insted of saying it like it's a sticking point.

    It's pretty standard under-promise/over-deliver. Better to give yourself more buffer room than have angry calls after the fact.

    This was also the watch I ordered and had it saved as my only favorite.

    I'm not trying to brag but I ordered QUICK. I clicked Account, Favorite, that Watch, Buy With ApplePay and held my thumb on the home button. Boom, boom, boom, boom, hold.

    I didn't even pause to order AppleCare.

    My CONFIRMATION EMAIL is time stamped at 3:01 and my delivery date is the same as yours - May 13-27.

    If they had ANY 42MM Stainless with link bracelets that shipped by the 24th the supply had to have been minuscule.

    I really hope that maybe they are just lying about half the delivery dates. When I went to order mine, even at 3:02, the Stainless Steel with a Milanese loop was already at 4-6 weeks. My order was placed around 3:18, but that was because I was staring at confusion on a new tab where I was double checking to see if there was a mistake.

    Oddly, up in Canada, the Milanese loop watches were in stock for 4/24-5/8 for quite some time. (Like 20 minutes or so.)

    On the other hand, the leather loop watches (which is what I wanted going in) were at 4-6 weeks as of 3:02 AM.

    So I was: 3:05 AM (three minutes' hesitation), 42mm SS with Milanese loop. 24/4-8/5 delivery.

    Just broke down and ordered a stone leather loop, which'll deliver in 2-4 weeks. (1-14 May.)

    Apple is Apple. We'll be annoyed till we get our stuff, then happy. In a few weeks, it'll all be forgotten.

    The Milanese loop is nice but smaller than I expected. It was snug around my hand when I put the watch on and took it off

    I ordered through my mac book pro, and was somewhere in the ball park of 10 minutes late. I originally wanted the space grey sport, but my back up was to go with the bright green, because I figured not a lot of people would go for that, right off. I was right, and was able to get the Apr. 24- May 8. Then I went back 5 min. Later, and ordered the black bands. After listening to a lot of podcast, and looking at forums, I guessed everyone would be going for the space grey sport.

    Maybe it's because my wife wears these type of bands, but I consider it too feminine. Even I didn't feel that way, I'm not sure I want to wear matching bands with her. The link bands don't appeal. I didn't like the looks of the sport band but will get one anyways. So it was leather loop or classic. And classic wins for everyday.

    I was one of the luckies. I ordered that exact watch and mine is normal shipping times.
