    Let us know if you've placed a pre-order for the Apple Watch and what your ship date is.

    I placed an order about 15 minutes after the Apple Store came back up for a black Apple Sport Watch and my estimated ship date is June.

    I got my Apple Watch ordered less than 30 seconds after the store came online and my expected delivery date is April 24th-May 8th. That means it will likely ship on about the 19th of April.

    Initial Apple Watch stock dries up in minutes, shipping times quickly jump to 4-6 weeks




    [​IMG]




    Consumers who weren't ready to to order at exactly 12:01 a.m. Pacific time on Friday have missed their opportunity to receive an Apple Watch on launch day, as every model is now unavailable until at least mid-May.

    Apple Watch Sport was the first to go, with delivery times slipping to "4-6 Weeks" less than 5 minutes after pre-orders opened in some locations. Stainless steel models quickly followed, though some of the more expensive versions remained available for launch day delivery for over an hour.

    Edition models skipped the 4-6 week window entirely, dropping directly to June, where nearly all models now stand.

    Apple warned of supply constraints earlier this week, choosing to take pre-orders exclusively online to cope with expected demand. Many consumers appear to have followed the company's advice to stay home, leaving relatively quiet scenes at Apple retail stores around the world.

    "We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet," Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts said. "Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favorite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch."
    While some believe that Apple is purposefully withholding Apple Watch stock to drive an increase in perceived demand, that remains an unlikely possibility.

    The Watch is an extraordinarily small and complex device, using many components that have never made their way into a shipping Apple product before. Sources toldAppleInsider last month that Apple faced production issues with the wrist-worn device "at every stage of the development."

    Apple CEO Tim Cook has previously discussed his displeasure with the fact that Apple is required to schedule major media events — like the Watch unveiling — months in advance, as it needs to coordinate the availability of venues larger than its on-campus auditorium. This situation prompted the addition of a larger facility to the company's new spaceship campus, and could have been a tip that Apple would have preferred to push the Watch debut back, but could not for logistical reasons.

    Lending credence to word of supply constraints, Apple also shipped apparently buggy versions to advance reviewers, promising that new software would address many of their issues before consumers receive the devices, an extraordinarily unusual move for the company.

    I had my order for a 42mm stainless steel with black sport band in at 3:05am Eastern time. Email confirmation said "Shipment 1 Delivers: April 24 - May 8 standard shipping."

    I think there's a fair chance that you and others with similar shipping dates could see your Apple Watches ship earlier than expected if Apple can ramp up production soon enough.

    I ordered in the first 5 min started at 3:01 and was all finished ordering at 3:05 so I am expecting the April 24. Delivery. Because any time I have ordered my iPhone's and iPad I started the min I could and I always got it the first day it came out.

    Youre confirmation should have included an expected shipping date. Lots of people ordered in the first few minutes, and still ended up with delivery dates later than the 24th. I suspect it had a lot to do with the model ordered. I ordered the space gray with black band; which according to a lot of informal polls seems to have been a very popular choice.

    If they stay true to form it will say 'processing' until shortly before it ships, and your card won't be charged until around the same time. I suspect that is what processing means; that they've got your order but haven't shipped it or charged you for it yet.

    Just checked my status and one of my watches has now changed to:
    Preparing for Shipment
    Of course it is my wife's watch, a 38mm sport. My watch still shows processing.
