While called "leatherette" it is a vinyl of some sort.  Some cameras will last just fine, some it seems to harden and become brittle.  When finishing working on a camera, we would wipe it down with a very small amount of Armor All to shine it up.   I doubt it had any long term preservation, just looked better.
