I recently got my first 'proper' timepiece, and it came with a Hirsch rubber wrist strap for it. I want to change the oiled leather strap and put on the rubber one. Since this is my first proper watch, should I just get it done at some watch shop? How much do you think this will cost? Also, I wouldn't mind learning how to do it myself with that special tool. I saw a video on it in YouTube.
I am assuming most people here change their own wrist straps, and can see the utility in doing so. But, for the first time, should I have it changed at a proper watch shop? Also, I am looking for a general daily cleaning cloth for the brushed stainless steel crown and crystal. A jeweler's cloth perhaps? Can I just walk into a watch shop and ask to purchase one? And, when I begin to get hairline scratches on the brushed stainless steel crown, any type of cloth for that?
Thank you all very much in advance.
