    Could everyone who has had a status update please post the times their status changed to "Preparing for Shipment" or at the very least when you saw the status change. I'm trying to get an idea of times I should check for updates so I don't have to once every hour.

    In an effort to curb my own obsession, i began to think beyond my want. I have been trying to be more patient. I have anxiety issues. So I dug deeper into the who, what and where. I googled "Apple Foxconn Factory" the images are humbling. Very humbling. Maybe it can help y'all in the same calming way it helped me. Now, excuse me while I go check my order status again!

    From what I have read on here and from the experience of people I know who have got their watches, I would advise looking more at your credit card/debit card balance rather than your Apple tracking page. It's a pretty consistent pattern that watches are delivered about 24 hours after they take the money. The status on Apple doesn't seem to change for a while after they take the money. I've got 3 tabs open on my work browser, this forum, my credit card balance and my Apple order tracker, although due to the wait i'm getting less and less excited about receiving it

    Received my watch yesterday, ordered 4/10 3:10am eastern time. Its a good learning curve, but I'm glad I purchased it. I'm gonna go through my first full day with the watch and can't wait for the experience. I'm starting to feel a more personal relationship between my watch and my phone which is cool. Good luck guys with getting your watches!!

    I wish I could. It's a birthday present for me so it wasn't my card. I just have the Apple ID info to check the status and I have my phone number set for shipment notifications. Obviously this doesn't help with the initial charge. I asked the person to keep an eye out but doubt they are lol. So looks like Amex will know before I do 😢

    Last night I checked my orders and the watch I got for my mother got bumped from 4-6 weeks to 3-5 weeks and then this morning I was checking email and I see that I was charged. I went to check the order and it now says preparing for shipment.

    Mine still says June but maybe it won't take forever...it will be nice for her to get in time for Mother's Day. I didn't order until 4/28.

    Hers is a 38mm ss bsb
    mine is a 42mm ss wsb

    Just occurred to me...my mom is in Hawaii I wonder if that delays delivery at all ?

    In a delightful twist, my card processed and status changed last evening. My watch is currently out for delivery. Will update when it arrives. I hope everyone else will soon experience the same fortune.

    I'd say the thing getting on peoples' patience isn't that they've missed their window, it's that orders that were placed later with later delivery dates are being sent before earlier ones in cases. It seems that purchases are not being fulfilled in the order received. Granted, I do understand that demand on different finishes and bands could also effect this, but a good play on the manufacturer would be to push to build units based on the requests received and not to just push out what they have when they have it.

    In my case, a friend ordered 14 hours after me and received both units (42mm Sport silver blue and white bands). My order confirmed at 3:06am EST (42mm Sport Space Grey) and is still processing after my card pre-authed over a week ago. That is understandably a little frustrating along with the fact that they're about to start pre-ordered in several more countries in the coming week when they haven't filled current orders yet.

    Granted, will I cancel my order? No. Will a still complain? Maybe a little. But like most, I'm just excited to get my hands on this great new tech.

    For those like myself who have ordered the Apple Watch SS and SBSS w\Link Bracelet:

    9to5mac.com:

    Nearly one month following the start of Apple Watch and Apple Watch band pre orders, Apple has begun preparing to ship the first orders of standalone Link Bracelets, according to multiple 9to5 readers. These $449 Link Bracelets are separate from orders of the Apple Watch with Link Bracelet, in both the standard silver and Space Black combinations, which do not appear to have begun preparing to ship as of yet.

    The first Apple Watch with Link Bracelet orders currently sit in a shipping window between May 13 and May 27, and customers of those models should expect credit card charges and shipment alerts over the course of the next week. It is notable that Apple is only now shipping Apple Watch Link Bracelet accessories weeks after many press review units included the most expensive Apple Watch band. Charges and shipment alerts for the standalone Leather Loop band are also starting to trickle out.

    ----

    So I assume since they are shipping just bracelet, they would have our watches ready right? LOL.

    I got an Apple notification and got HAPPY, and it was just my extra sport black (w\space grey pin) that shipped. Don't have my watch, but I have my extra band. I e-mailed Tim Cook yesterday just asking politely whats the deal with our link watches.

    38mm watches seem to be shipping faster. 42 mm are primarily shipping still for those who ordered on the 10th. Over the last couple days, the Twitter feeds have been ramping up with people getting their watches. You can see the time pattern of pre-order day. Feels like their making headway with production.
