Leather is a natural material and should be avoided by water as it can change the shape and color of your bracelet.In order to keep your watch as well as possible, it is important to clean your watch strap.

However, there are different types of leather, each of which requires specific maintenance for further maintenance.
How to clean a leather watch strap: the steps
To protect your wristbands from dirt, humidity and the sun leather, whether smooth, raw or vegetable tanning, we recommend that you take the following steps.
For this, you will only need two soft cloths and a little soap (optional).
1 - Using a soft cloth, dust your leather strap before cleaning it,
2 - Moisten your soft clothwith a little water. You can add a little soap if you want. However, if you add soap, use very little so as not to damage the leather of your bracelet.
3 - Gently brush your bracelet using the slightly damp soft cloth to degrease your bracelet. Ideally, you should clean your bracelet on the inside and outside, of course paying particular attention to the seams.
4 - Dry your bracelet using a soft dry cloth,
5 - Let your bracelet air dry and at room temperature
Certain particular leathers require certain specificities. This is the case, for example, with our ostrich leather bracelets whois used on some of our bracelets. It is a supple and exotic leather that has great resistance to heat but still requires care, especially to maintain its flexibility.
To properly maintain this type of leather, follow the same steps as above but proceed to a second dusting with a damp cloth this time. Then, when you brush your ostrich leather strap, do it in circular motions to clean it well.
For better efficiency and to properly remove the dirt that settles in the hollows of your grained leather you can use a buffing brush instead of a cloth.
Regarding our Charlie Paris lizard bracelets, their maintenance is carried out in the same way as the steps detailed above. However, to avoid damaging your bracelet, run your cloth and avoid rubbing too hard so as not to damage the scales of your bracelet.
