a <hot> Rolex


Money is illegally selling stolen goods and the buyer gives him less money than he expected.
MONEY: There's a fucking Rolex in there, bro.
BUYER: And what do you think, I'm going to put it up for auction at Sotheby's? Do you know how much people on the street pay for a hot Rolex? You want money? Then steal money.
Don't Breathe, movie

"Hot", it must be some slang here, but I don't know what exactly it means.
