Will your leather watch strap get smelly?
Leather naturally has a fresh, rich and earthly smell - but it does not smell bad. However, if you wear a leather watch strap daily, the pores in the leather can trap odour over time and becomes unpleasant. This means that you will need to clean it regularly with leather cleaning products.
To reduce the chance of your watch strap from smelling, you probably has to give it a break, by leaving it in an open environment overnight. This is to allow the leather to breathe. Leather absorbs the swear and dirt that are inevitable when you wear it regularly. If you don’t let it breathe, the pores in the leather may trap unpleasant odours. It’s also a good idea to take your watch off when bathing and swimming.
What should I do to protect the leathers straps?
You can apply leather conditioners or oil to your watch strap occasionally. Less is more when it comes to conditioning your leather. In addition to making your leather soft and supple this softening process can be beneficial in preventing cracking in the leather - something that occurs when the leather losses it’s natural lubricant.
Note that using a leather oil may darken the leather colour slightly, so check to see what your conditioner product says about darkening, and then spot test in the underside of the strap first. Follow the instructions of the particular leather conditioning product for best results. Take care of your leather strap, and it will maintain a classic look for years to come.
