Dark Red Cricket Ball
UPDATE – we found a scrap of this discontinued leather and have been able to make a few more! Please note these are the new uni size. A one size fits all.
The Schofield cricket ball straps takes inspiration from the stitching patterns used in cricket ball fabrication and is made from the same leather used by Dukes in their Special County “A” – Grade 1 – cricket balls. In the world of cricket two names are synonymous with the craft of ball making. In the Southern hemisphere the Kookaburra ball is pre-eminent while in the Northern hemisphere we have the Dukes Cricket Ball. The Dukes Special County “A” – Grade 1 – Red cricket ball is used exclusively for Test Matches in England as well as all First Class County Cricket.
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.
A buckle is not included. Please visit the accessories page.

Cricket ball leather is heavily dyed and can stain light coloured materials. Please be aware that should this strap get wet the dye will leach out. Over time the red will bleed onto the stitching and the leather will form pinker patches, it also tends to get shinier. Avoid getting it wet. Use your neutral shoeshine to restore and polish. If you need a strap for swimming with we recommend the India Rubber.
