The leathers used in Schofield’s Tiger Loaf straps are tanned and prepared here in England. You can choose between cracked and smooth in the drop down menu. The cracked is more or less cracked and the smooth is more or less smooth. Every strap is different. All straps come with a set of our proprietary lug protection stickers. If you regularly change straps then we suggest you consider some Schofield drivers, purpose made for changing straps on Schofield watches.
