    Re: Mark Gordon RIP

    Sad news. RIP Mark and thank you. Does anyone in the forum have contact with Mark's family members? A family member would be in the best position to keep his website alive.
    I think many of us would donate generously to cover costs but none of us have access or rights.

    Mark was working for several years on a book about Russian watches. It was never published but I wonder what happened to all the notes and materials he must have collected?

    Re: Mark Gordon RIP

    I do not know him as I came late to this forum and not much of a talker.
    I will like to say rest in peace and may his family recover and may the Our overseer look after his family

    First of all know that our thoughts go out to his family and friends!!!

    But perhaps a moderator could pin this post so we can track Mark's site in the future.

    New of the website being down is most unfortunate.

    See bullet point 4 in the post linked above. The intermediary working to find a buyer for Mark's collection before he passed away was also trying to preserve the website, but I suppose it must have fallen through at some point.

    Edit: Reading a few posts later someone who knew Mark personally said the website was maintained at Mark's expense, so I guess that explains why it is down now. And I thought I was on to something there :(

    If anyone has found a way to preserve Mark's legacy through his website I am also willing to contribute financially

    Well done for listing all the pages. When I looked at https://web.archive.org/web/sitemap/www.ussrtime.com the site map was much less and these links didn't exist as shown by the image below left. Somehow, the web archive has been updated with a larger site map - image below right.

    I agree it would be good to have the content in a more easily viewed format but at least we are able to view the records in the meantime.

    Re: Mark Gordon RIP

    Please look at www.ussrtime.info

    As much as I could I saved from archive.org. All the collection description is now up and you can browse it. Unfortunately, I can not restore the original search function.
    The hunt is half the fun.
