Ultimately its your decision, but IMO wearing a watch can actually be kind of cute if you think about it. Think about it like you would be able to know that in X amount of time you get to be married! Also you said its small. If you are truly against it and had planned on not wearing anything then maybe you could appease your grandma by wearing it at the reception?

Have you seen it yet? I would at least look at it before you say no. I actually wore my great-grandmothers “watch” at my wedding but it looked more like a bracelet. It is an antique and very dainty…you may be surprised when you actually see it.  I got many compliments for wearing something so unique.

Your grandma’s watch sounds REALLY nice, like a bracelet essentially!

My mom has a VERY similiar one with a very tiny face on it–it’s all gold with diamonds and everything. It’s just gorgeous and it’s really stylish and classic.

I wish i had a picture for you, but wait until you see it first. My mom’s watch is really more like a bracelet…that tells time =]. It’s very dainty, just like one of the PP mentioned.

I wore this exact kind of watch on my wedding day! It looked like a pretty bracelet.

I’m not sure how the band is, but if it doesn’t have a noticeable hook/clasp, you might could turn the watch to where the face is underneath on the inside of your wrist? That way the pretty band of the watch is what would be most seen.

I’m not wearing a bracelet, but am wearing my grandmother’s antique watch instead (as my something old). It’s white gold and has some diamond decoration. The actual watch face is very tiny, so it looks more like a bracelet. I love that part of my grandma will be there with me as I walk down the aisle.
