Finding the perfect-sized watch can be a challenge for women with small wrists. This is why we often see ladies opting for bracelets or bangles as their go-to accessories, as slender designs complement their wrists beautifully.
Enter the watch bracelet—a category of timepieces that flaunt a smaller dial and are typically crafted from metals like gold, silver and titanium. While relatively rare in the realm of watches, they are highly sought-after for their modern, stylish and luxurious appeal. Here, we gather a selection of designer wristwatches that also double as bracelets, making them timeless accessories that add a graceful touch to any outfit.
This piece is a mini model of the Baignoire de Cartier line, crafted with a beautifully oval dial face and connected with a sleek bangle strap. The minimalist design is enhanced with a beaded crown made of the sapphire cabochon. Matching the blue sapphire are the sharp sword-like hands that point to Roman numerals. Adding durability to its design, this watch bangle is also water-resistant for up to 30 metres.

Inside the brand’s spirit animal is a 36 mm quartz-powered dial that indicates the hours and minutes.
Fendi O’Clock Vertical
This stylish dial is made with a gold-coloured stainless steel case, as the two F logos interlock to create an oval case that houses the silver face.
