    1. There is hope for you!! I mentioned earlier that mine had been shipped from China but it turned out to be a bridesmaid dress that my wife had ordered, unbeknownst to me. 😠.
      The good news is that mine is now on my wrist. Received yesterday by UPS, shipped from Pennsylvania. Black stainless steel, black stainless link band. WooHoo!

    I ordered it Sunday evening after the Friday when preorders first became available after trying one on in the local Apple store that Sunday morning. Previously, Apple had indicated delivery from May 21st to June 5th.
