    Speaking from experience (on the buyer side of things), if Morozow receives a direct offer to buy outside of eBay, the entire listing will be deleted. I'm guessing that's what happened here.

    Actually, the whole post was more about it, not the watch itself...

    How would you translate/transliterate the words on the face? "T. Meffert -- S[aint] P[eters]b[urg]"?

    I've never even heard of that maker, and a google search is null result.

    Amazing, and in spectacular condition!

    It was a period pre-1917 when it were some "manufactures" of watches in Russia. I call them "manufactures" since they only assembled watches from parts and marked the dial by the name of their trafing houses (it was kuptsy "купцы" - merchants, gemeric name, analogue of businessman). For example this movement is bilodes.
    So we do not know precisely how much of them were at the market at those times, some of them are known only by this names on dial. There are some serious collectors of such Russian "manufactures", maybe the can shade a bit of light on this issue.

    BTW, this piece is for auction now, till end of the day, starting price ~ $130.
