Here's the official statement provided to BuzzFeed:
“We’re happy to be updating many customers today with the news that their Apple Watch will arrive sooner than expected,” an Apple spokeswoman told BuzzFeed News. “Our team is working to fill orders as quickly as possible based on the available supply and the order in which they were received. We know many customers are still facing long lead times and we appreciate their patience.”
The company hasn't provided any more details as to why some orders are shipping earlier than expected. Perhaps supply isn't quite as limited as it was on the first day of pre-orders.
