    I have a few leather band watches that i stupidly put cologne on while wearing and now have startd to pick up a mixture of my colognes. I was wondering is there anyway to clean the watch of this smell?

    Have you tried cleaning with warm soapy water and conditioning the leather with Lexol or Zymol (sp?)? I got ten years of smoking (by the previous owner) out of my car's seats with a few washings.

    take the bands off the watches, and use a good lotion-type leather cleaner on them. then apply a neutral colour beeswax cream to get the leather shiny again.
