You could also use this to mean "wristwatch."  It is situational.  If I sign to my wife, "YOU KNOW WHERE MY BRACELET?"  She would automatically understand that I'm looking for my "watch."  But if she signed the same thing to me, she might need to fingerspell, use the "TIME" sign, or use lip movement to clarify what she is talking about..

Some people do this sign with the middle finger and thumb encircling the wrist instead of the index and thumb.  

Note:  This sign can be used to mean "wristwatch."
