If you scratch or dent your steel buckle you could have it refinished for a small charge. You can change colour with our special ceramic coating or even coat previously purchased buckles that may be looking tatty. Just drop us a line.
Schofield’s purple indigo tweed watch straps are custom made and renowned for their quality. Featuring premium materials and craftsmanship. Schofield uses Moon Mills fabric for this purple watch strap and also as a lining material in the Schofield Watch Wallet. The word ‘tweed’ is an English variant of the Scottish word ‘tweel’ which refers to a rough unfinished hand woven fabric. Nowadays it is a general term for all carded ‘homespun’ wool.
A buckle is not included but can be bought separately.
India Rubber is a perfect material for Schofield straps. As well as its aesthetic quality it has a large stretch ratio, high resilience and it is extremely waterproof. India Rubber, also called natural rubber or caoutchouc, is harvested in the form of latex from certain trees. In places such as Kerala, on the South West Indian coast, where coconuts are in abundance, the half shell of coconut is used as the collection container for the latex, but glazed pottery or aluminium cups are common elsewhere. The cups are supported by a wire that encircles the tree. The latex is led into the cup by a galvanised ‘spout’ knocked into the bark. This process is called ‘tapping’. The latex is then refined into rubber ready for commercial use.
