Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I saw a poster outside Cartier today next to the Palazzo casino. Normally, like 99.99% of the time, I'd walk by.

But with an engineer's curiosity, I had to go in and look at the UR-202. It was only $129,000 before tax. I held it, drooled and handed it back to the eager-eyed young man who hoped he had a sale.

Looking at their website, all the models are very cool, but the UR-203 gets my nod. And I don't even like wristwatches.

One of my other obsessions, Watches. Huh The watch you saw is an incredible piece of art. The interesting thing is that Urwerk uses tourbines and oil for the automatic mechanism on this watch to work. The turbines and the Oil make wrist movement on this watch last a looooong time.I think They are the first brand to combine tourbillon technology and its precision into a watch with this movement. Instead of measuring time, this watch measures friction through its very complex mechanism of air compressors. Incredible, right? The nicest watch I've seen is a Jaeger LeCoultre Gyrotourbillon. Living in Vegas, I guess you've seen a couple of those. LOL.
Thanks for posting,
Alfredo.

Did you see the add with Bernie Ecclestone for the Hublot watch? He was mobbed and they stole is $60 000 watch. So he took a picture of is damage face and gave (or sold most likely) to Hublot for them to use as a publicity stun. It says : Look what people would do to have a Hublot...(or something similar)

Most of my family lives in Mexico. A couple of years ago, when the situation was not as bad as it is now, My grandpa got an Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore stolen from him. Cry It sucked because it was a birthday present. Embarrassed
