This dark brown leather used by Schofield is manufactured by Clayton Tannery, a small traditional tannery based in Chesterfield. The leather is processed in the traditional way in pits using oak bark. The Clayton Tannery was established by Joseph Clayton in the middle of the 19th century. A small independent tannery, Clayton’s produces only British leathers, being fabricated from domestic hides from Northern Ireland, and tanned using methods that have not changed since the tannery was established in 1840. They are one of the last remaining pit tanners left in the UK and supply to almost every continent in the world.
A buckle is not included but can be bought separately.
Schofield watch straps are available in two sizes; regular and long.
Medium/average wrists are covered with both sizes.
The regular sized watch straps are 110mm on the non buckle side and 75 on the buckle side. The long straps are 115mm on the non buckle side and 90mm on the buckle side.
If your wrists are less than 19cm (7.5 inches) in circumference then we suggest you choose a regular length strap. If your wrists are more than 19cm (7.5 inches) in circumference then we suggest a long strap. If your wrists are approximately 19cm in circumference then a longer strap will give more of a tail; most guys opt for a regular sized watch strap with a shorter tail.
This is a very tough and durable leather which will become quite shiny over time. It will look like a polished conker. Avoid saturating in water. Use your neutral shoeshine to restore and polish. If you need a strap for swimming with we recommend the India Rubber.
