Leather watch bands are frequently put together with two pieces of leather that are pressed
and glued or stitched together. Over time, these two pressed pieces of leather may come
apart and need to be glued back together. Use this guide from Esslinger-dot-com to learn
how to put your leather band back together.
Be aware that if a leather band is slightly coming apart, you should be able to put it
back together with a little glue. However, if the band is dramatically ripped or coming
apart, it would be better to replace your band completely. Check out this video to learn
how to replace your watch band.
Tools you'll need to re-glue your watch band: Super glue
And a piece of paper
Start by laying the piece of paper out on your work surface to protect it from the glue.
When the paper is in place, take your watch band a position it on the paper so that the
section where the band is coming apart is accessible to you.
Take your super glue and spread a thin line of glue between the two parts of the band
that are coming apart.
Press the two parts of the band together so that they will bond together the way you want.
Be sure to keep your fingers away from the glue so you don't accidentally glue yourself
to the band.
Hold the band in position for a few minutes until the glue has set up.
Once the glue has set up, set the watch band down on your work surface. Let it sit a little
longer before you start to wear the watch again to ensure a secure fix.
