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.
The green canvas will lighten in colour over time even slightly yellow – In a really good way. Clean with soapy water. Canvas is water resistant but to keep your strap looking its best please avoid continually saturating with water. If you need a strap for swimming with we recommend the India Rubber.
These screwdrivers have been designed from the ground up. We threw away the shackles of the Swiss realising that we do not need watchmaking screwdrivers for changing straps. Watchmaking screwdrivers are designed for vertical use, whereas any Schofield strap changer worth his salt will know that this is a horizontal task! We need short and stubby reducing off-axis leverage and increasing torque. The blades have been ground to fit the Schofield screw heads so precisely that they block out the light! Two drivers for changing straps and one for buckles. A set of three; two green, one black.
Schofield uses a thick Milanese suede for these remarkably soft and luxurious straps. This one is a muted blue/grey colour. All our watch straps come with an engraved Schofield buckle fitted, and 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.
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.
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.
A buckle is not included but can be bought separately.
