SS with Milanese and SS with Classic Buckle. Both say 4/24-5/8
Got a Gray Sport first but ships in May so changed mind and got the SS. May cancel, may not. I'll wait and see.

Got my order in at 12:01:30 for the black 42mm, but it was already backordered, and the in-store pickup option wasn't even available. Disappointed they couldn't even handle 1 minute of demand, and the store pickup wasn't an option.

Got my order in, I ordered the stainless steel with the Milanese loop from the app.

I really hope like everyone that these orders don't take till May 8th.

I got in right away on the app and the ship date for the 42mm stainless with link bracelet was 4-6 weeks. I don't thing April 24 was an option for anyone getting that model.

Not sure I care for this new "range" for shipping times...I imagine a lot of people will be pretty pissed off when iPhone pre-ordering comes around and they stay up to pre-order first only to get an email saying "Ships between "x" and "x" date". I don't mind but just seems a bit of a "safe" move on Apples part to avoid shipping obligations on release day.

Yeah I know. I tried to go in and look at order status. I wound up ordering 3 cause one was going to old work address and email that doesn't exist anymore. Noticed it too late. I am hoping they show up in apple pay passbook soon do I can figure out what to cancel

It's a bit deceiving on Apple's part to say it's launching april 24th when it's not in stores at that date and preorders are weeks off from that.

It threw me off when I was looking at it, too.

Still, all's well that ends well.

42 mike mike Sport model with the black band. Hopefully this shipping time is just an estimate... Ordered at 3:03 and it's 4-6 weeks.

I agree in this instance...if it had a 2-3 day window, I'd say it was just a matter of making sure they had enough time for "shipping and handling", but 2 weeks? That is just clearly obligation avoidance to play on the safe side of the fence.
