The tennis player René Lacoste was knick-named ‘the crocodile’. He chose the icon of a little crocodile as the badge when he launched his eponymous clothing line in 1929. Since then the Lacoste range has grown to include many beautifully designed items, like leather goods and watches. Lacoste men and women watches are streamlined and elegant. The little crocodile is always there, in various sizes, to remind everyone that this is the trademark of a champion.
Genuine leather is an organic material, that will likely deteriorate overtime. To avoid or postpone the deterioration, do not expose your watch to extreme direct sunlight, high humidity, oily products and cosmetics, that can cause stains or discolouring.
To clean your leather strap
Always consult with your watch manual before cleaning. Remove the strap from your watch carefully. Use a dry cloth -preferably microfiber- to wipe off both sides. Dampen a second soft cloth and add a drop of liquid baby soap. Clean the strap with tapping movements or gentle circles. Using a different damp cloth gently wipe the leather. Let the strap air dry. Place the strap back. Apply leather oil from time to time. If you do not feel sure that you can perform the band removal and cleaning, consult with a professional.
