With Great Leather Comes Great Responsibility
A classy accessory, a leather watch is every man’s go-to watch. Its appearance and comfort is what makes it great. Though it is a versatile watch, you do not want the leather to start smelling odd, especially if it’s one from your favourite collection. Having said this, a good way to prevent any damage is to take a white cloth (using a coloured cloth might make the dye mix into the leather), dip it into a solution of luke-warm water with soap and gently clean the inside of the strap. The same applies to the outside of the strap, if required.
A Thought for Metal Strap
A metal strap watch is worn on a regular basis by most of you. Metal and water are old rivals. Make sure you don’t clean the strap with water as it can potentially rust your watch. However, the key to clean a metal watch is to take a damp cloth and clean it thoroughly on the inside and out, especially between the rivets and gaps. Lastly, make sure you dry the watch properly to avoid any formation of rust.
Watch the Face!
