yes. I am not saying leather is any less classy than steel. But the tendency for leather straps to absorb sweat makes it less lasting than the steel strap. I have a diaphane chrono with a leather strap and that is why I want to raise it up. The smell cannot be remove easily even with washing and drying it in the sun.
That is why Tresor Magique and other collectors Irony comes with a replacement strap. If the piece you are buying is intended for some light wear, be sure to buy one or two more sets of leather strap for replacement.
