    Not for me, it didn't. I was able to get into the store no sooner than 12:03 with the app.

     

    As of this morning, my order still reports "processing" with the same 4-24 to 5-8 delivery date window.

    Apple has such an interesting approach to fulfilling orders. Wish I could nail down how it works. Order confirmed at 2:03am central time after preorders went live. Delivery date states 4/24-5/8. People with longer expected ship dates being charged and orders moving to preparing to ship. Mine still stating it is processing. Guess I'll just hope for the best at this point. Would imagine all orders arriving Friday will state they are shipping by end of today, if they follow suite of iPhone preorders.

    Ordered 42mm space grey sport with black band.

    Boo for getting my hopes up. I'm still a bit steamed that I ordered literally 2 minutes after they went on sale and am still showing an expected delivery date of May 13-27. I was hoping mine would be among the early to ship batch, but alas, disappointed again.

    Of course, being mad at Apple does no good. I still want my watch, so I'm not going to cancel my order, and even if I was mad enough to cancel it, it'd mean far less to Apple than an ant bite on an elephant's backside.

    So I'll just sit back and wait as patiently as I can for Apple's venerable supply chain to do its thing... but I won't pretend to be happy about it!!!

    Anyone else who ordered a 42mm space gray sport expected to deliver 4/24 to 5/8 still have their status as processing?

    I thought the Apple Watch was a failure? What's with all the posters talking about their orders being processed? Must be Apple fanboys¡

    It is a Failure....yes, failure to fail.

    Yeah - they took the money but it's still 'processing'.  If it hasn't left China yet, I am losing hope that it will arrive any time soon. 

     

    Preparing for Shipment!!!! As of this afternoon!

    SS with black leather band 42mm ordered complete at 12:06am, credit card has been charged!

    I ordered both the 38 and 42 SS with the Milanese loop, simultaneously on 2 iPads. I just got notice the 38 is preparing for shipment; nothing yet on the 42. Seems more 42s are being ordered, IMHO.

    Preparing for shipment as of this afternoon.  But they take a long time to actually arrive from China, I think.

    I'm in the same boat as you. 42mm space gray sport expected to deliver 4/24 to 5/8 but still processing. I ordered through the app with Apple Pay. I hope I wake up to a change of status. Otherwise my optimism for a Friday delivery will fade quickly.

    It sounds like the 42 mm space gray is the one that is taking the longest to change. That is the one I am waiting for.

    Same thing happened to me and I'm very upset about it. Any luck with yours?

    Has anyone who ordered the 42" Space Black SS been charged & see the order status change to preparing for shipping? That's what I'm anxiously waiting for. Mine still shows processing with delivery between may13th & may 27th...:\

    42mm with the Milanese Loop preparing for shipment (UK customer, ordered within 2 minutes of being on sale)

    Maybe, or perhaps we are just over analyzing based on incomplete information.

    Ok, you're on your own, Dr. M: mine just prepared for shipment! :smokey:
