    Finally got that email from Apple saying my witch's will be at my house on 5/13!
    Happy days are just around the corner and the question is whether it's worth the money and time I have been waiting for the watches!👍👎👌

    I think the SS models are more difficult to manufacture, because the aluminum models seem to ship/deliver much quicker in my opinion.
    I believe the aluminum watch shells are poured into molds, whereas the stainless steel and gold watches are machined from a solid billet. I'm guessing the delay with the Stainless Steel w/link bracelet (both silver and black) is the manufacturing of the link bracelet. Apple's site says the link bracelet takes nine hours to make, so it's probably a production issue.

    My spouse's Stainless Steel w/Black Sport Band arrived last week. Both were ordered at the same time on April 10th, with a delivery window of May 13-27. So, his arrived early. I'm hoping to see movement on mine this week.

    You'd think! But Apple is now shipping SS link bracelets to people who ordered extra/secondary bands. So they got their watch (Say SS with some sport band) and they're now getting their link bracelets too... while those of us who ordered SS w/link bracelet watches have seen no movement at all. It's hard to call that a production issue (or if it IS... it's a more complicated one than the lead-time on manufacturing of the link bracelet itself).

    Which model did you pre-order and when did you submit it?

    I agree. But, because they now have enough link bracelets to ship individually, that gives me hope that they just acquired a batch of link bracelets to package them up with the watches, so we'll see movement this week. So, rather than annoyed, I'm encouraged by this development.

    Your model watch must have a massive pre-order queue!

    My 42mm Apple Watch SS w/link bracelet ordered at 00:07 on April 10th with a delivery window of May 13-27 just changed to Preparing for Shipment status this morning, so I expect it'll be delivered on Wednesday the 13th. Apple has been shipping Next Day Air lately to catch up on the slow rollout.

    One curiosity today is that my credit card was billed for the watch (including tax), but the AppleCare+ price wasn't included in the charge. When I originally placed the order, the AppleCare+ was separately billed immediately, but later dropped off my credit card, much as if they were simply testing the credit card. When I checked online again today, AppleCare+ was indeed still part of the order, so I'll be looking to see if they bill it separately again. Wouldn't it be cool if they gave us AppleCare+ for free after waiting a month for our order?

    That would compensate for the longer than usual wait.

    Well, hopefully they get to moving with those orders also. The longer it takes the more watches their finally going to be putting out because they're getting their factory issues sorted out and fixed.

    The tactic engine issue really set production back for Apple.
