    Ranfft search tips?

    I know this website is worth its weight in gold. But oh boy, searching it is hard! Are there any tips or tricks folks have picked up to help identify a movement?

    For example, if I donít t know what this brand is, what are my options other than hunting and pecking? I donít even seem able to filter by size, jewel count or country of origin....

    Could also be a 'New' (for the time) FHF 98:

    Same bridge pattern, but thinner (3.6mm) and higher beat rate (21600).

    Edit: Have you found this in your search?

    FHF 98 for CAD49?! How do they make these things for so cheap? Slave army of gnomes and elves?

    If I can find a FHF96 for similar $$ it might be easier to just swap the whole movement and keep this one for spares.
