The leather on my saddle brown classic buckle has started to separate. I hadn’t worn it for a few years and when I started wearing it again recently, I noticed a residue leaking from the strap and dye on my wrist:


Now a few weeks after starting to wear it again (having cleaned off the residue and with dye no longer appearing on my wrist), the leather is separating:


Should I leave it as it is or try putting some glue in the gap?
