Mrs L Tweed Type 3
Mrs L’s mother had this dress making tweed stored in an attic for many years. It was kindly donated to Schofield for this sole purpose.
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.
- Size – 24mm wide at the lugs, 22mm wide buckle fitting
- Lining – bright green calf skin
- Stitching – pale blue contrasting
- Famous the world over for eccentric English fabrics and leathers.
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.
Simon Cudd was a reportage lifestyle and architecture photographer, an aesthete and generally disgruntled man. The type that will change a watch strap more often than not, but then again it was his business. Well known within the watch industry he has worked for some very serious players. One of his many obsessions was Schofield Watch Company and all their products – he has made suggestions on all of them with some of his ideas making it through to production. Who better to impose his taste upon the Schofield’s manufacture? Who better to nudge Giles out of his comfort zone, to jointly create some stunning new items to invigorate watches everywhere?
Alas Simon was snatched by cancer at the very end of 2018, such a huge character who’s personality – and beard – has left a void un-fillable. May his influence still be felt with this collaboration of special and limited straps.
