    For some reason when I put the watch away in the box, after a while the rubber band/strap gets all oily, is that normal?

    On its own? How often have you worn it?

    Yes, on its own, I don't use it anymore and it was clean when I put it in the box.

    this is 1 billion percent speculation here, but I'd imagine that the storage conditions are such that vanilla essential oils are liquefying and separating. :eek:

    Basically you need to move or store your watch with a dehumidifier. Where ever you live it's killing your band slowly...:hunter:

    Sounds legit... I will start using it instead of keeping it in the dark.

    Salt parrot refers to the vanilla smell your band should have. If it's oily then either the band is releasing the vanilla or its releasing the oils that sucked up from your wrist. You sweat and the band sucks up your sweat like a sponge. You live in high humidity place?

    I live in a low humidity place, not too hot nor too cold... What you say make sense, thank for your answer.
