Yesterday, for a short interval of time (they have disappeared during the dawn of the English and German Apple Store Online) we could see estimated shipping dates for each model of Apple Watch . If you went to the Apple website and looked at the watches, you could see that they didn’t all have the same estimated shipping date.
For example, the Sport edition, for all its models, had an estimated shipping date between April 24 and May 8 (two weeks later). The same was true for some stainless steel models (not all), the rest gave a deadline of 4 to 6 weeks and for all the models of the Apple Watch Edition, the deadline was a laconic “May” .
This would demonstrate three points (in my opinion) that the manufacture of the Apple Watch is as difficult as rumours have claimed over the last year , that does not know the exact demand and that because of this, the main focus of distribution will be the Chinese and North American markets . The “leakage” seems to have been at the European level. In a little more than 24 hours the Apple Watch will be available for booking and we will see the estimated shipping dates for all the countries where the launch will take place.
