    Kent would be the natural choice. But I have found that Kiwi horsehair brushes you can find anywhere do just fine.

    Anything with soft bristles. The hard ones are too aggressive, imo.

    Thanks, the CC20 looks like a good alternative then. Even good for suits yes?

    Assuming the buckle is the correct size for the strap? Not much besides not wearing it. If it's a leather strap, it will eventually weaken and break at the stress points, which happens sooner or later depending on the weather, how much you sweat, how often you take your watch off/put it on, and how tight you wear it. Some watch aficionados do like dress shoe fiends and rotate out their leather-strapped watches every day or two to let the straps dry out and breathe. If it's becoming a serious issue then wear a bracelet watch instead.

    The only other thing I can think of is maybe you're talking about the wear to the bottom (skin) side of the strap from being repeatedly bent backwards for the tongue of a conventional buckle. In which case, I'd suggest replacing the buckle with a deployant clasp. I've dealt with RHD deployants and can vouch for the quality and service.
