Leather Strap Care and Maintenance

What is the life expectancy of a leather watch band?

This varies greatly with the type of leather purchased and the acidity in the skin of the wearer. One year is the guideline but judgment is the key. If a band shows sign of excessive wear or having been exposed to water, it doesn't matter how long it has been worn. Leather is still leather; think along the lines of your leather gloves, shoes or accessories. It will stain and discolor with moisture exposure, and mark when rubbed on a roughish surface.
