If you wear your Ashton & Co. watch every day which we believe you will because you will absolutely love it, then we recommend cleaning it at least once a month.
Moisten a soft cloth with hot water. Gently wipe the case and crystal clean. Be careful not to put too much stress on the crystal as you clean. Avoid immersing or soaking the case of the watch regardless of water resistance to not soak the leather band.
* Remove the watch when working with chemicals, using hand sanitiser or paint remover as it may cause damage to the coating and make it oxidate.
Mesh Strap: Dip a cotton swab in hot water and gently rub it on the unclean area of the band. You may want to use a soft bristle toothbrush or nailbrush. Be sure to cover the case of the watch during this process so as not to soak it.
Do not use soap products, soap will leave residue behind when dry.
Leather Strap: Simply wipe it clean with a damp cloth, using water only. You may want to use leather conditioner or a small amount of hand lotion to keep the leather supple over time. Top grain leather may develop a milky haze if left alone for extended periods. This can simply be wiped away or removed with leather conditioner.
* Do not soak your leather strap as this may cause moisture which can cause the leather to rotten and tear if not properly dried.
