Use a q-tip dipped in 70% alcohol. You might want to go over the strap with a baby wipe to prevent it from drying out too much. If there is no patina on the strap at all though, I wouldnt do it.

I used regular erasers on pensils and worked great!
just be careful not to strip the leather...
oh and I have tried alcohol... not very good...
the ink kinda spread on the vachetta and got more harder to remove...
after I removed the pen mark with the eraser... I just applied apple conditioner.
