SCHOFIELD + CUDD GOOD MATESIt basically works like this. Simon and I source new leathers and fabrics from new suppliers and manufacturers. Simon has the ultimate say on whether we should make something into straps, after all it is his taste imposed onto Schofield’s strap making. It might go like this. Simon, ‘What about this?’ Giles, ‘No it’s gross.’ Simon, ‘Perfect’.Then once the strap is made I will say I was wrong, he is right, the strap is awesome. This has already happened on straps like the Dalmatian Spot or the Floral suede (pictured) for example.
SCHOFIELD + CUDD NEW SITESchofield + Cudd is its own entity and naturally has its own website. We wanted the Pips to be the first announcement so you could be the first to look around the shop. Many of the straps are extremely limited in number because some of the leathers are fantastically expensive or we only had such small pieces. If there are a number of straps you would like to add to your collection then email email@example.com so we can combine shipping.
SCHOFIELD + CUDD COATED BUCKLESLike Schofield, Schofield + Cudd will sell buckles separately and pictured is one of our new house styles. A ceramic coated steel buckle. How cool is that! A ceramic coating which is very tough but can also be reapplied. You can have your buckles recoated!
SCHOFIELD + CUDD BESPOKE STRAPSWhere are we going? Well, naturally we both have great ambitions for Schofield’s little brother. We have in place a way of making bespoke watch straps, a service we call Strap It! Details can be found on the Schofield + Cudd site. We will be making many more straps in new materials and some of you will be pleased to know that we will soon launch 22mm and 20mm lug fitting sizes to compliment the 24mm (Schofield watch) fitting straps we have in stock today. Favourite the Schofield + Cudd site and check back for updates, so for now tuck in!

SOME MINOR STRAP NEWS!We have restructured how we sell straps. Now the buckle is an option. For many of you the buckle is an unnecessary expense so we have removed it as an obligatory part of a strap sale. The new prices reflect this.Buckles will be sold separately of which there will be a selection of new spectacular finishes!
THAT PATINATED COMPELLERWe have a pinch of these patinated and polished bronze Compellers. The central part of the rotor has been force patinated with a sauce of chemicals then the weights have been polished back. Not as uniform in finish as our standard Compeller – sometimes blotchy in places but full of ancient character and wonderfully tactile. Email if you are interested…
