Comparison of belt watch and steel belt watch ，what different ？
The leather strap is soft, supple and comfortable. It also avoids the allergic reaction to human body caused by the leakage of nickel metal like wearing stainless steel strap. Therefore, the fastidious people generally prefer to use the leather strap. The color and design class of the strap is also diverse, such as Crocodile, Lizard skin, Cow skin, Ostrich skin. The most common is a watch band made of cow leather.
To be strong and durable, the leather strap must not last longer than the metal strap. The normal life of wearing a strap is 2-3 years, which is a "consumable product". But have a bit of affirmation, want to wear normally only at ordinary times and do careful conserve, can raise its service life greatly, this and the reason that wear leather shoes is the same.
Like everything else in the cortex, water (and human sweat) is the last thing on the strap. After being immersed in water for a long time or exposed to moist environment, the leather strap will become hard and brittle immediately. So you should never wear a watch with a leather strap to go swimming (or do anything with water for a long time). Long - term sweat soak soak retting, still can make watch strap moldy change flavour. If you're a particularly sweaty person, it's not appropriate to wear a leather strap. Apart from the hot season, they are more suitable for wearing leather strap.

Ion plating watchband will also change color, fade color. The stainless steel band needs to be polished for a period of time, which also helps to extend the service life. In particular, it should be noted that even stainless steel watch strap is also afraid of water.
