    Waaaaaiiiiiit a second.

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

    Likewise. My 42mm with the Milanese Loop still says "in process" with the 4-24 to 5-8 arrival window. No charge to my card.

    I have a nasty feeling that the Milanese Loopers may be in for a bit of a wait....

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

    I ordered both - 42mm Grey Aluminium (the way Sir Jonny says it) with black sport band (confirmation email at 12:03am PDT), and a 42mm stainless with black sport band (conf. email @ 12:04am).  Paid with Apple Pay from the iPhone app, and no charge to the card yet.  Still processing.  Maybe it's those black sport bands.

    The aluminum and stainless cases are made of specially crafted alloys for beauty, durability... and to reject gold plating.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I'm curious. If the delivery time is estimated at 4 -6 weeks and the date is stated as May 13 to 27, why do you think you'll get yours this Friday?

    Anyone from Australia received a shipping status or credit card charge?

    Once the order changes from "processing" to "preparing for shipment" you can throw out the projected shipping range.
    Apple has a history of under promising and over delivering on initial roll outs.

    38 mm ss with Milanese Loop - took my money yesterday morning, but status unchanged - still says 4/24-5/8 .  

     

    For some reason, I could not even access the online store for the first 10 minutes of the sale window.  Must have been an att u-verse glitch, because I haven't heard of anybody else with that problem.

    I just got shipping notifications for both the 1m and 2m charging cables I ordered minutes after the store opened on Friday 3:02AM.  I expect to see my 38mm and 42mm Apple Watches (both aluminum with blue sport band) get shipped today as well.  Hopeful for Friday delivery.

    The estimated delivery date won't change. Where it says "processing" will change to "preparing for shipment".

     

    The online store was 10 minutes late. The iOS app opened on time. If you waited for the online store, you got lucky if you got 4/24.

    Completed order within the first 5 minutes using the iPad for a SS with a black leather band and no change yet in status as of Tuesday morning.

    online store - Won't get mine till 1 or 2nd week in May - SS with Milanese Loop 42mm.

    Ordered @ 12:20am on 4/10 - had to keep refreshing to get in..... don't care - so worth the wait.

    I per-ordered the 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop at 3:08 EST, Says it will deliver 4/24-5/8. I have yet to receive a preparing for shipment notification or see a pending charge on my credit card... How likely will I receive it Friday? Has anyone received a notification regarding their 42 mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop?
