That is what has been fueling prices even in the last 2-3 weeks for those.

The bubble? Not likely to stop for awhile as there are MANY MANY more posts about waiting 1-2 years than there are waiting 1-2 months. Social media is definitely playing a part in the "perceived" availability (whether real or hysteria) of SS models.
It's been removed from here
https://m.rolex.com/watches/configure.html#/

It has also been removed from the ad catalogs for 2019.

This is how they "announce" it. They don't typically say "x watch will be gone" they just quietly remove it.

The speculation is on what the ln and blnr get replaced with. That is what we will find out at basel.

As for the availability, rolex told its ads to expect more limited quantities. As far as waitlists go, that's ad dependent. Spend a bunch at your ad, your wait is going to be much shorter than someone who walks off the street wanting to be on the waitlist.
