    Just a glitch - keyboard operator or bar code reader probably. It's moving, that's the main thing.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Actually, looking at it again, it probably means that the origin postal service is preparing shipment - i.e. loading it onto a plane.

    ya thats what I thought but how can that be because it says it was internationally dispatched on the 9th? Also this updated happened overnight and most people seem to get their watches from him in 3-4 days tops

    It's a glitch. No better explanation, sorry. The one "tip" I'd have is to switch over to the US-side carrier's tracking page, but based on your screenshot, you are already checking there.

    One of my JDM packages had the same hiccup in tracking. Best advice is to stop reloading the page for the day.

    Because shipping agents use these terms loosely. If a parcel moves from one shed to another (especially if it goes 'airside') then that can be termed 'international dispatch'.

    Unless we learn something dramatically different, we can assume that your watch will soon be aloft - and may even be aloft as we speak.
