While I really like the OEM strap that comes with this watch, I decided to change the look of my MC GMT a little bit, and here it is:

The strap is made specifically for JLC Master Compressor watches. It comprises carbon fiber patterned nylon on the outside with red double stitching and red calf lining on the inside. The carbon fiber pattern along with the color combination makes the watch a lot sportier, which is very fitting with the master compressor watch in my opinion. At first, I was afraid that the red interior lining might be too flashy but I found it to be perfect after a couple of days of wear; only a very small portion of the red lining near the tip of the strap will show when it's worn.

This strap is much thicker than the OEM alligator. For me, I would prefer this thickness as it makes the watch wear better on my rather small wrist. I also like how it tapers out toward the tail. Similar to the OEM strap, it also has a pointy tail.

The strap appears to be very stiff when I first got it. But it forms to the shape of my wrist just after one day of wear. It is very comfortable.

Thanks Mpalmer! I think you nailed it there, the strap definitely makes the watch come alive!

Drool. Not usually a fan of carbon print but that looks ace. Nice photos too.
Thanks Geoff, glad you like it!

Wow! I love the red lining, that's a really nice touch!
Thanks Jrsnow! Yes, as I mentioned I was a little concerned that the red lining is a bit too flashy, but it is indeed the perfect final touch of the strap.
