Tips for Cleaning Leather Watch Straps

men's watchesLuxury watches with leather straps make for stunning accessories. Whether rawhide, salmon, nubuck or napa, a leather strap instantly signifies style and distinction, boasting both a distinctive look and texture.

Indeed, it’s easy to fall in love with leather watch styles to the extent that you can’t bear to take them off. But frequent wear presents some irritating problems including a grubby strap.

Here are our top tips for cleaning watch straps:

Wipe the strap with a dry cotton or microfiber jewelry cloth. Since moisture easily builds up between skin and the strap, it’s advisable to regularly wipe the watch strap with a dry cloth. This will ensure dirt is removed before you wash the strap, thus preventing bits of dirt rubbing against the strap and damaging it.

Wash the strap with soap and water. Wipe the strap with a damp cloth. Add a little moisturizing hand soap to the strap and gently scrub the strap. Rinse the cloth, wring it out, and wipe the strap again until clean. Allow the strap to dry thoroughly.

Condition with leather conditioner. Use a quality leather conditioner to soften your strap and add sheen.

Go Big And Go U-Boat

watches The eternal debate about whether or not or how much size matters extends to the matter of choosing a watch as well. Oversize watches are loud and super chic, with many popular dress watches clocking in (pun intended) between 38-40mm in width for men, and general wear watches between 40-44mm. Diver watches can be even larger. Part of the trend has to do with the watch brands selecting more and more celebrity ambassadors with big, macho images like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

What is the answer? Well, of course, It all comes down to what fits your wrist and what the intended purpose is. Diver watches are great, but if you spend your summers surfing the New York subway system, they may not be the best lifestyle choice. However, if you do decide that size as a statement is an important factor in buying a new timepiece, U-Boat watches, just like their original namesake, are bold, aggressive and oversized. These timepieces embody the force and style and reveal the unique personality of the man behind the brand, Italo Fontana. For instance, check out this U-Boat men’s classico with automatic or mechanical movements, a black dial and orange brown calf leather strap.

Quartz Vs. Automatic

watchesWe have not talked about the different ‘movements’ of watches, literally the pieces that make them ‘tick.’ Electronic movements are sparks by reactions from a quartz crystal, while mechanic movements govern both ‘automatic’ and ‘manual’ wind watches. Quartz is the most accurate movement, you do have to change a battery. However, a well engineered automatic can be just as accurate in all practical terms, and they require far more engineering and craftsmanship. The right choice depends on your lifestyle and aesthetics.

Quartz watches are not only less expensive, but also better suited to a highly active lifestyle. For evening wear or the executive boardroom, though, a solid mechanical watch, whether it’s manual-wind or automatic, is the clear choice to turn heads. A quartz dress watch might be a good compromise for those on a budget, but the good news is that we have great discounts on all kinds of movements.

All of our brand name watches are fine, but today we are featuring Ebel. 100% Swiss made, each Ebel watch is the product of a keen eye, a skilled hand, and an unwavering quest for perfection. The movement of an Ebel timepiece is a result of many years of research and development along with each watchmaker’s devotion to finding the technological optimal solution. Here is a fine example: this Tarawa mens’ stainless steel black dial with automatic movement and  a genuine black leather alligator strap. Check out our entire collection of automatic and quartz movements today at TheWatchery.com!

New Arrivals Include Stuhrling Watches!

watchesA watch may be a tool for telling time, but in the hands of a skilled watchmaker, it becomes a work of art – something to be admired. For hundreds of years the watch represented wealth and status, a luxury available only to society’s elite. As technology improved, they became commonplace. However, a few strive to recapture the centuries-old spirit of quality watchmaking. Because of them, masterfully crafted timepieces have resurfaced; each one is inspired by the “old world” but built using modern machinery. That is the philosophy of the Stuhrling Prestige brand. And that’s why we’ve got a whole new selection of quality Stuhrling watches new at The Watchery.

Take, for instance, this Prestige Men’s Marine Pro with black dial, red bezel, quartz movement, and black rubber strap, now available for an impressive 69% off. The Marine Pro is a rugged and stylish timepiece found among the Aquadiver Collection of men’s watches. This watch boasts an impressive 50mm solid stainless steel case with a unidirectional ratcheting bezel decorated with a wave pattern. A Ronda Startech 5030.D Swiss quartz chronograph movement powers its many complications, including an add/split chronograph, small seconds, 12 our counter, and quick set date for ultimate flexibility and customizability.

Two-thousand such watches were ordered and produced, which represents the first important commercialization of wristwatches. In 1965 Girard-Perregaux designed the first mechanic movement at high frequency, at which the balancer beats at 36,000 vibrations/hour and in 1970 Girard-Perregaux presented the world with the first wristwatch to be equipped with a quartz movement and the following year a second one which vibrates at 32,768 hertz, the frequency remaining the universal standard for quartz watches today.
