The crocodile leather watch strap can be called gold in the leather material industry. The crocodile leather material is precious and famous for its luxury and rarity. The reason for this situation is that the number of crocodiles is small, and only a small part of the crocodile skin can be used for leather, watch strap. Although this kind of leather is expensive, it is not as strong and durable as cowhide. Luxury watches are not originally based on more expensive and more durable as the value standard.
If you wear a crocodile leather watch strap every day, the life expectancy is generally about 2 years. If the strap uses a folding buckle, the situation is better; if it is a pin loop into the buttonhole like a belt, it is most likely to crack from the bent part. In fact, all leather straps are afraid of sunlight and frequent exposure to sweat, as well as water and humid gases. Otherwise, in these cases, the leather strap will dry out, become stiff, stinky, and eroded. This is the same situation as when wearing leather shoes.
The materials of general leather straps can be divided into crocodile skin, lizard skin, shark skin, ostrich skin, and calf leather etc, the price is different. No matter which kind of leather strap material is worn, it will produce odor and hardening occurs, if the proper maintenance methods can be taken, the life of the leather strap can be extended by more than half. A correct and ideal way to maintain is to use leather-compatible lotion, soft wet cloth, fast natural air-drying these three steps to keep your leather strap still fresh.
