Dark Red Cricket Ball

Dark Red Cricket Ball


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.

A buckle is not included but can be bought separately.

All straps come with a set of our proprietary lug protection stickers. If you regularly change straps then we urge you to buy some Schofield drivers, purpose made for changing straps on Schofield watches.

Size guide

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.

Strap care

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.
