How To Care For Your Strapcode Watch Bands

Your pvd coating Strapcode watch is a fashion accessory like any other. Get spare watch bands or two for your watch, change the pvd coating up depending on what you wear or do, and wash the watch case and watch bands regularly.

How To Keep Your Strapcode Watch Clean

Watch Case

We recommend that you wash the pvd coating watch case after each exercise session to remove sweat, dander and any Seiko kinetic residue of lotion or body cream that you may have on your skin. If the watch is fitted with silicone or elastomer watch bands, the same Seiko kinetic cleaning instructions apply to the watch bands.

Care Instructions:

  • Wash the Seiko kinetic watch case with lukewarm water and mild hand soap.
  • Rinse well and dry the watch with a towel.
  • Use a cloth to remove stubborn dirt or watch bracelet stains and a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove debris from charging contact points or recesses. Click here to watch Strapcode watch bracelet cleaning instruction video. 

Watch Bands Materials And Care

Silicone Or Elastomer

Watch bands Many watch bracelet watches have hypoallergenic silicone watch bands. Silicone is soft and comfortable against the skin, and it's an easy-to-clean material, making silicone watch bands ideal for swimming and sweaty sports. The Seiko kinetic watch is mostly used on our older watches, elastomer watch bands are a little stiffer than silicone watch bands and Seiko kinetic watch straps are suitable for high intensity activities.

Care Instructions:

  • Regularly remove your Seiko kinetic watch, wash the case and bracelet with mild hand soap and lukewarm water, rinse thoroughly and dry the 20mm watch band well with a towel.
  • We advise you to wash the 20mm watch band case and the bracelet after each intense session.

Use will have a significant impact on the performance and lifespan of leather watch bands, and 22mm watch band contact with fresh or salt water and perspiration may change the color and smell of the watch bands.

Although leather watch bands are designed for everyday wear, wearing the Seiko watch bands day and night will affect their quality and lifespan. We therefore advise you to take off your Seiko watch bands for the night.
