    Just to make sure I understand - you both ordered right on the 10th? So they are still working on the backlog of orders coming only three to four hours after pre-orders opened?

    Yup. From what I have been reading they are starting to get to ones around the XX:10 am on the 10th

    Oh man, that is depressing. I ordered on the 18th. It's still reading June, but I guess that is going to mean later in June, unless they manage to get production ramped up.

    I feel your guys' pain, but at least you should be only a week or two away.

    I believe these times are 10 and 62 minutes after ordering opened. 3:10 am EST is 12:10 am PST and 4:02 am EST is 1:10 am PST so they are still working on fulfilling the 1st hours worth of orders. Seems like a huge amount of people tried to order one in the first couple hours after the pre-orders opened. This is fairly typical of Apple products. I figured I would have a long wait because I waited till the next morning to order.

    I'm also wondering if the bad batch of Taptic Engines was destined for the initial shipment of 42mm SG-BSB watches adding to the delay...

    Wow, just wow.

    I'm also wondering if they guessed wrong on the popularity of different case/strap combos. I'd be willing to make a bet that more units of 42mm SG-BSB have been ordered than all other combinations combined.

    (Safe bet, since we'll never know.)

    I would just like to hear daily production totals. How many units are they churning out a day and at what ratio of models?

    I read somewhere (wish I could find that link now) where someone was saying something like 66% for the black band (I'm thinking a good percentage of that was the SG), 22% for white band and about 5-8% each for the other colors.

    I just checked my status and since this morning it changed to preparing to ship!

    correction now it shows shipped, so at least the shipping label has been printed.

    I think those whose confirmation are at XX:18/XX:19 are right on the cusp of the next shipping dates beyond 5/27. I'd like to see movement from anyone near my order time to give me more hope. It just amazes me that we're talking about shipments with confirmations minute by minute. Apple really messed up somewhere, but I'm sure we'll never know why.

    I don't know if I would say they messed up, I think the issue is demand for this brand new product is just off the charts and pretty much impossible to estimate. Just sayin

    I ordered my SGBSB in the morning and got my confirmation at 7:10am on April 10th. I am in the May 29 - June 11th window, so it looks like that window has a wide range of order times.

    7:10 in what time zone? Most of the posts referencing an order confirm time of xx:10 are talking about 10 minutes after midnight pacific time - the first 10 minutes that ordering was available. So far, it appears that group got projected delivery dates of May 13-27.

    Mine arrived today! Whoo-hoo! (A day early given the original May 13 window.)

    Got home tonight and I've only just started messin' with it, but, man, I can't believe anyone disses this amazing little piece of technology! Very cool! I have a "Personal Setup Session" in about 20 minutes. That, plus the very cool packaging really shows you you're getting an Apple product, thank you very much!

    UPDATE: Status just changed tonight (May 9) to "Preparing for Shipment".
    Now I'm wondering how long until delivery...

    UPDATE 2: On evening of May 10, status changed to Shipped!
    Conformation email received and states May 12 delivery. Tracking# doesn't show detailed info as of 2:00AM Monday May 11.
    FINAL UPDATE: Apple Watch arrived this afternoon (May 12) one day earlier than the original delivery timeframe range of 5/13-5/27.

    After playing with it for a few hours I have no doubt that it will plug wonderfully into my digital lifestyle. I haven't worn a watch in over 12 years and this just feels right at home on my wrist.
