Genuine leather watch straps and stainless steel watch straps have their own advantages and disadvantages. How to choose depends on personal preferences, let’s explain as below:
Genuine leather strap is relatively soft and conformable, and it also avoids the allergic reactions caused by the exudation of nickel metal when wearing a stainless steel watch strap, and it also looks luxury. Therefore, rich man who pay attention to the general preference prefer leather watch strap. Leather straps come in a variety of colors and kinds, including Crocodile, Lizard, Cow ( also called calf ) and Ostrich. The most common leather watch strap usually made of cow leather.
To be sturdy and durable, a leather watch strap is definitely not as durable as a stainless steel watch strap. The life of a normal leather watch strap is 2-3 years, which is considered a “consumable ” while a stainless steel watch strap can be used for 20 years or more. But one thing is for sure, as long as you wear leather watch strap in right way and do careful maintenance, you can greatly increase its service life, which is the same as wearing leather shoes.
The most taboo on leather straps is water, including human sweat. After prolonged immersion in water or exposure to humidity, the leather watch strap will immediately harden and become brittle. Therefore, you should never wear a leather watch strap when swimming or do prolonged contact with water. Long-term sweat soaks can also make the leather watch strap moldy. If you are a person who particularly sweats, it is not suitable to wear a leather watch strap. Except for the hot season, it is suitable to wear a leather watch strap.
