As the watchband touches the skin directly on the user’s wrist, it becomes dirty easily with perspiration and dust. Many watch owners are not aware of the necessity of keeping the watchcase and band clean. Perspiration or dust absorbed by a leather band, in particular, can cause a breakdown of the leather reducing the life of the strap. In the case of a metal band, perspiration and dust sticks more easily due to its structure. The use of a contaminated watch band will not only reduce the life of your bracelet and connecting pins, but may also soil clothing that may come in contact with it.
