    Caring for crocodile leather straps

    Got an IWC pilot's watch with crocodile leather strap.

    Its starting to get a bit tired (losing some "sheen") and I was wondering what the best product is to condition it? Don't want to ruin the original finish, I've tried just using a small amount of water but it doesn't help.

    Cheers

    To restore the sheen, I use Timberland Waxed Leather Protector. Apply some on the strap by finger or cloth. Buff it with soft brush. if you cannot find it, try KIWI natural (clear) wax.
