    leather treatment?

    Does anyone have a suggestion on what product to use to treat / protect my two stowa leather straps? Currently I have two riveted straps (1 black old-style and 1 brown nappa airman) that I would like to protect before the summer humidity kicks in.

    Thanks.
    Current Collection: Rolex Sub 114060, Eberhard & Co. 8 day ref. 21017, Heuer ref. 3006, Omega Speedy 3576.50

    Wishlist: A dual-time dress watch, with date, in the 38-40mm size range and under 12mm in case height...any suggestions?

    Any leather conditioner will do, but remember some will change the colour of the strap slightly. Try on a small area first if possible. Wives normally have full watch strap conditioning sets in their cosmetic collection. I have used Nivea cream with good results...

    Thanks for the replies.

    Hey Mike - does beeswax darken / change the color of the leather?

    Not experienced with my straps (even with a light brown ostrich) but can not speak for those you have.
