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.

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?
