Search finds any watch that has a portion of the text included in the field. For example, when searching for "Canterbury" in the title field, search will return all watches that have "Canterbury" or "The arch bishop of Canterbury" or "Canterbury Tales" in the title.

Upper and lower case are the same, and search does not distinguish.

Dates normally take the format of xxxx-xx-xx or year-month-day. Search will find any portion of the date. For example, searching for "1764" will return all watches with that year. Searching for "01" will find all watches with the month or year set to January or the first. The date search does not find years within the start and end dates yet. This will be impemented soon.

Be careful when searching if you are not getting results. Make sure the form is cleared or select search again from the right navigation. Incorrect combinations, such as a year from one watch and the maker from another will return no results.

The explanation on the right of the search fields indicates what kind of infomration can be entered. Text, 36 suggests you can enter text up to 36 characters long. Enumerated indicates only those values in the drop down menu are acceptable.
