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. BOCA MMXII stands behind all manufacturers defects. Durability and usage concerns are discretionary.

Watch Size Guide

Selecting the correct watch size online can be overwhelming, as the watch cannot be “tried on for size” prior to purchase. In these cases, the best way to determine whether a watch will be an appropriate size is to draw the case size on a piece of paper, cut it out, and size it to your wrist.

As watch measurements are taken in millimeters, you will need to convert to inches in order to use an inch ruler. Simply multiply the mm measurement of the watch by 0.03937 to convert to inches. (Ex. 40 mm X 0.03937 = 1.57 inches).

Our watches have 4 different watch case diameters: 

Traveler - 35mm/1.38in (suggested for women - small size)

Style Master - 38mm/1.50in (unisex - medium size)

Alfieri, Primero Swiss and Riviera Automatic - 39mm/1.53in (unisex - medium size)

Grand Traveler and Momento Chrono - 42.5mm/1.67in (unisex but mostly for men - large size)
