Repost with some new images, lower price.
Rolex Submariner, 5513 (2.1xxxxx, from 1969). Meters-first, matte-black dial, with the fat font "kissing 4" markers on the bezel. Creamy yellow patina, all matched up. Missing pip, small chips in bezels, but otherwise pretty suave. Images! Proof!
A little backstory (old news for those that read the original post): This was purchased in Nassau, the Bahamas, in 1970. My dad apparently had a killer day spearfishing, got all liquored up, and then had a killer night in the casino. He went straight away and purchased this watch. He wore it for a while, then kind of just stopped and hung on to it. I don't ever remember him wearing it, nor does my mother. He claims he can't remember ever taking it for service. I came into the watch recently, and I'm here to pass it on. Don't try to tell me not to.
I took it to Chris watch here in Chicago, he said it was good to wear. Noted it was still fairly well-lubricated and remained waterproof, though it would benefit from a service for serious wear.
Located in Chicago, willing to do face-to-face. Otherwise prefer Paypal from verified source. I will pay shipping within continental US, don't want to do anything international.
$8650 net to me, OBO.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Leader of the Opposition Philip "Brave" Davis, toured the Port Lucaya Market on Grand Bahama, dismayed at what he saw.
"Freeport, Lucaya, all of Grand Bahama island is suffering under the Minnis Administration. Under the PLP, the Freeport Incentive Act stimulated the growth of somewhere outside of Nassau for once. Of course it was one of the immediate act of the FNM to revoke the endeavor, crippling the growth of the nation outside of New Providence. The loss of the FIA has led to the withering of the Grand Bahamas economy. Companies like the GB Shipyard have taken their money elsewhere. Trade in the straw markets has all but dried up. The agreement on the purchase of the Lucaya Resort has fallen through on the watch of the FNM. The market is in dismal conditions, the casino is closed. It is like the FNM doesn't want Grand Bahamas to continue recovery from Hurricane Matthew like the PLP did. Under Perry Christie and the PLP the Grand Bahamas was prospering and growing. We were all but set to rebuild and regrow everywhere. From the resorts to the casinos, from the markets to the port. The PLP had an agreement with Carnival to break ground on a new cruise port, bringing tourism and growth to the island. One year later where are we? Not a shovel of ground has been broken. What is the Minnis Administration doing I ask you? Nothing. Remember this.
Davis continued his tour of the island, visiting Freeport, Lucaya, Eight Mile Rock, and West End. His message resonating in all of these, where the economy had lagged behind that of Nassau, where the promises of the Minnis Administration did not seem to catch up with reality. West End in particular continued to struggle, with the closure and collapse of much of its economy with the loss of the West End Marina.
Though elections were not for another few years in 2022, it was clear that under the leadership of "Brave" Davis the PLP was not going to let their stinging loss in the last election stand. Davis and the other three remaining opposition Senators kept up efforts, with a clear focus on visiting a number of the Family Islands and Grand Bahama, though the real political fight as always will take place on New Providence and in Nassau itself.
Later that week PM Minnis fired back at his Opposition counterpart.
"Our vision for the Grand Bahamas is to transition it to the technological hub of the Caribbean. This technology hub would serve the Bahamas and the greater region, bringing jobs, money, and sustainable growth to the entire island. The PLP would have the Bahamas stuck in the past in an ever evolving world."
He also refuted Davis' claim that the purchasing agreement on Lucaya Resort had collapsed, labeling the statements of the Opposition Leader as false and untrue. tl;dr
Opposition takes hits at the Prime Minister and his administration on economically hamstringing or ignoring the regions not on New Providence.
PM Minnis hits back by promising to make the Grand Bahamas a technology hub of the country and the region. Refutes other claims made by Davis.
