Space Black Apple Watch Pre-orders Slip into July

If you're space black Apple Watch with link bracelet ship time is four to six weeks, it's time to stop complaining because orders placed now won't see theirs until July. Apple's website showed a July ship window for the 42mm model Monday morning.

Apple opened pre-order sales on Friday, April 10, and ship times for all models quickly jumped from the expected April 24 delivery date to four to six weeks. Within half an hour that time frame jumped to June for most models.

Currently, all Apple Watch Sport models are showing June ship windows, too, as is yellow gold Apple Watch Edition. Several stainless steel Apple Watch models are still showing four to six week shipping windows.

The rose gold Apple Watch Edition is also showing a July ship window, which means you'll have to be patient to get your bling on.

Now that Apple has a better idea which Apple Watch models customers are interested in, it may be able to focus production and improve at least some ship times. Or so we can hope.
