Schofield’s grey tweed watch straps are custom made and renowned for their quality. Featuring premium materials and craftsmanship. Schofield uses Moon Mills fabric for this 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.

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 worsted woollen tweed is exceptionally tough, in the first couple of weeks expect this strap to fuzz up a little, this shortly wears off and the fabric looks as good as new for a very long time. They don’t really show the dirt so cleaning is not much of a concern. If it is a concern then soapy water will do the trick. Avoid continually saturating in water. If you need a strap for swimming with we recommend the India Rubber.

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.All of our watch straps come with an engraved Schofield buckle fitted and with a set of our proprietary lug protection stickers.
