Care Instructions for Cordovan
To keep a watch strap of cordovan leather in a perfect condition as long as possible, first of all it is important to protect it against long-standing exposure to sunlight, dirt, water or moisture. For that reason, remove a watch e.g. before washing, showering, sailing, swimming as well as protect it against contact with paints, oil, grease, lubricants a.s.o.
It’s important to make sure not to fasten your strap too tight because a lesser tension below the buckle will repay you with better longevity.
It is normal that natural leather changes in appearance over time. It’s usually caused by absorption of sweat, water or moisture. As a result, leather turns darker and stains can appear.
To clean cordovan leather don’t use water as it stains leather. Clean with a soft dry cloth. A metal buckle of brushed stainless steel one can clean by wiping it with a soft gently damped cloth (but pay attention so as not to wet leather).
Quality is our top priority and all Paul Twice straps are built to last. However, durability of your cordovan leather watch strap will also depend on how it is looked after.
