Getting a steel sport model from Rolex at retail pricing is a bit tricky these days. But it doesn't have to be thanks to StockX, and the references like the 116900 Air King, 16570 Explorer II and 114300 Oyster Perpetual are perfect examples. The Air King was released in 2016 and quickly took a back seat to the ceramic Daytona introduced the same year, but it's a sleeper hit that could have future classic written all over it. It's the same story with the Oyster Perpetual 39, which arrived a year earlier and slots perfectly into entry level territory that can be worn everyday. The reference 16570 Explorer II has been around since the early 90's - and has been a fan favorite since going out of production in 2011. Interest in these models has been tracking up in recent years, but each can be had readily at StockX right now, and for under their respective retail prices. If you need what's hot right now, retail price be damned, StockX has you covered there as well with all the current references you can't get your hands on at the AD.
