How do I remove the strap from my watch?

Before you start cleaning, it's crucial to know how to properly remove the strap from your Aston Martin DB5 inspired watch. Make sure you have the right tool to change the straps.

What do you need to clean your bracelet?

To clean the strap of your DB5 collection watch effectively, you will need a soft cloth, lukewarm water and cleaning products adapted to your type of strap. Be sure to use mild products that will not damage the leather or other materials.

Cleaning a slightly dirty leather watch strap

If your leather bracelet is slightly dirty, you can use Marseille soap diluted in warm water to clean it. Apply the soap to a soft cloth and gently rub the bracelet in a circular motion. Once you've finished cleaning, rinse the bracelet with clean water and dry it with a clean cloth.

You can also clean your leather bracelet using cleansing milk applied to a cotton pad. Be sure to test the product on a small area of the bracelet before applying it to the entire surface, to avoid any adverse reactions.

Cleaning a very dirty leather watch strap

For more intensive cleaning, you can use white vinegar or alcohol mixed with talcum powder to remove stubborn stains. Terre de Sommières is also effective for absorbing dirt. However, be careful not to use these products in excess, as they could damage the leather of the bracelet. Use them with care and be sure to rinse and dry the bracelet thoroughly after cleaning.

Cleaning a Nylon Watch Band

If your strap is made of nylon, you can clean it by rubbing it gently with Marseille soap diluted in warm water. Use a soft bristle brush to remove stubborn stains, then rinse thoroughly with clean water and leave to dry completely before putting the strap back on your Atelier Jalaper watch.

How often should you clean your DB5 collection watch strap?

It is recommended that you clean your Aston Martin DB5 inspired watch strap at least once a month to maintain its original cleanliness and appearance. However, if you regularly wear your watch in dusty or damp conditions, more frequent cleaning may be necessary to prevent dirt build-up.

What should you do every day to prolong the life of your Atelier Jalaper DB5 collection watch strap?

To prolong the life of your Aston Martin DB5-inspired watch strap, avoid wearing it during activities that could damage it, such as sport or gardening. Wipe it regularly with a soft cloth to remove dirt and sweat, and store it in a dry, well-ventilated place when not in use.
