When buying watches, many people will be entangled whether to buy a belt or a good band. Like younger, more elegant, will generally choose a belt watch, high-end belt watch like to use crocodile skin as a strap. Crocodile leather strap is expensive, the whole crocodile skin can be cut to make a strap part of the crocodile is the spine on both sides of the chest and abdomen, depending on the spine is too hard, depending on the belly part is too thin and soft can not be used, so down a crocodile skin can produce about 10 straps, of which 4 can be made of good quality, the degree of treasure can be imagined.
So now there are many imitation crocodile leather straps on the market, today we teach you a few tricks to distinguish true and false crocodile leather straps. First look at the pattern, there are some crocodile leather bands on the market. It is made by pressing the crocodile pattern mold on the cow belt. Because the manufacturers usually use only one set of molds to reduce the cost, so a brand crocodile pattern cow belt is generally a pattern style. When you buy it, you may as well ask the salesman to give you a few more comparisons. If the pattern is the same, it is basically false.
Really, the patterns of crocodile leather straps are different, even if a brand, a model and a batch of several crocodile leather straps are not the same. Because the pattern of crocodile skin is just like that of human palm, it is completely natural and different, so each pattern of crocodile skin is unique. From the different parts of a crocodile skin, the pattern of the belt is even more different.
There are many fine irregular textures in the real crocodile skin. This is the second natural wrinkle of the adult crocodile. It can not be imitated artificially. This is another characteristic of the natural skin texture which is different from the machine-pressing texture.
True crocodile skin has "bamboo stripes", so-called "bamboo stripes", especially similar to bamboo joints and knots, there are many vertical and fine cracks arranged, very fine and irregular, which is also a remarkable feature of natural skin stripes different from machine-pressed stripes. However, the machine-pressing pattern is a rigid pattern, and the black stripes on both sides of the pattern imitate the "keloid" of crocodile skin keratin.
Secondly, look at the handle. The new alligator strap is soft, elastic and not rigid. The new cowhide strap is a bit tough, without the elasticity of the crocodile belt. In addition, the crocodile strap has a premium, and the lacquer skin level is higher than that of the ordinary cattle belt.
Finally, look at the workmanship, after all, is in the top wrist watch accessories, genuine crocodile belt workmanship is all fine work, basically manual completion, the logo is also stamped up, the imitation process is rough, used glue-stained process. If the work is too rough, nine times out of ten is false.
I hope these tips can help you distinguish the true from the false when you buy the alligator belt. Finally, I want to tell you that even the alligator belt should be carefully cared for. After all, the loss of the leather strap is relatively large. Some friends around me worry that the loss of the alligator strap is too large, so they take off the original alligator strap and collect it. The other calf leather strap is worn and will not be worn in summer to reduce sweat erosion.
