The Watches on House of Cards

Rolex Seadweller 4000 Black Dial Steel Mens Watch 16600

If you follow Netflix’s American political drama, it would seem as if everyone is overwhelmingly in control – even when it comes to their wardrobe.

As some of the most powerful men in the (fictional) world, the men in this series know that they cannot leave anything to chance, be it their political moves or how they present themselves.

Here’s what they wore on their wrists to achieve that compelling political style:


Cartier Tank Francaise Small Steel Ladies Watch W51008Q3

Cartier Tank Francaise and Tank Louis on Claire Underwood

Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright, took over the main role in the final season of the show. Over the first five seasons of the show, she ascended from being Frank Underwood’s wife, First Lady of the United States, and finally the 47th President of the United States.


Cartier Tank Louis Yellow Gold Brown Strap Ladies Watch W1529856
The ruthless, composed, and calculated Claire has impeccable style throughout the show – as seen in her excellently tailored dresses and luxurious evening wear. On her wrists are Cartier classics: the Tank Francaise and the Tank Louis.

Frank Underwood always has an IWC on his wrist, and the Portuguese is his everyday watch. It is a classic IWC model, based on the original Portuguese watches in the 1930s.



Tag Heuer Monaco 40th Anniversary Limited Blue Dial Mens Watch CAW211A

Tag Heuer Monaco on Remy Danton

The Monaco is worn on the show by Remy Danton, Underwood’s former press secretary, played by Mahershala Ali. As one of the wealthier players on the show, he tends to care more about his appearance. His choice of a trendy watch is proof.
