Thereby, depending on the colors of the bracelets and the wrist circumferences, lead times vary. For the Alpine Loop, we reach October 11-18 for the Ultra. For the Boucle Trail, we go to October 25 – November 2, and, for the Ocean Bracelet, October 4-11 (the bracelets being more standard for the latter, the deadlines seem to be more controlled).
For the Apple Watch Series 8, the Midnight Blue and Stellar Light aluminum cases have also switched to October 13-20. But the most classic -Silver or RED- and the Apple Watch SE 2 can still be delivered on Friday (especially excluding Unique Loop). As for the Steel Boxes, we are also shooting in mid-October. Finally the Hermès version displays 10-12 weeks.
