Can I wash the straps?


In regards to washing our leather and canvas straps, it would not be appropriate to use water and soap as it will dry out the leather and affect the quality of the feel. We advise that you take the strap into a local watchmaker who will stock a suitable cleaning product tailored to washing leather.

In regards to the nylon strap, it would be suitable to use moderately warm water to wash with a small drop of washing powder. A gentle rub should be suffice to clean the strap then you should leave it to dry on a flat surface in a material to soak up the water, i.e. paper towel.




Battery life?


Our watches use a standard button cell battery and have an expected lifetime of 2-3 years depending on the external environment they are exposed to, i.e. humidity.

Charitable Efforts


We look to promote gentlemanly behaviour, random acts of kindness and charitable behaviour. As such we give 5% of our profits to two chosen charities:

CALM (2.5%)

"THE CAMPAIGN AGAINST LIVING MISERABLY, or CALM, is a registered charity, which exists to prevent male suicide in the UK. In 2014, male suicide accounted for 76% of all suicides and is the single biggest cause of death in men under 45 in the UK."​

We, at GENT, feel that CALM does amazing work and that nobody should be taking their own life, as everybody, especially young men, have the potential to do something great and have something worth living for. For more information visit: www.thecalmzone.net ​

Prostate Cancer UK (2.5%)​

"Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, we will stop prostate cancer being a killer."
Any type of cancer is a terrifying experience, we want to help Prostate Cancer UK save the older men in our lives and help protect the young men of today in the future. For more information visit: www.prostatecanceruk.org
