All PANERAI buckle meet the highest quality standards. Rinsing the buckle and the bracelet with warm fresh water after contact with salt water contributes to the longer shelf life. For heavy soiling, we recommend washing the case, buckle and strap with lukewarm water without causing great friction. The straps are best dried at room temperature after being dabbed dry with a microfiber cloth.
Attention: Fast drying of your strap by direct sunlight or on heated surfaces is not advised.
