Long-haired girl from Chicago

What it is:
Carte de visite (or a CDV-sized cabinet card) measuring 2.5 x 4.25 inches.
What I know about it:
Photographer is O. F. Weaver of Chicago, Illinois. Otherwise undated and unidentified.
I’m never quite sure what to call these, with the heavier card stock and gold edges of a later cabinet card, but the size of a CDV. I think of CDVs as being a 19th Century product, but if that’s a wrist watch (and I’m not sure it is; maybe it’s just a bracelet), it would likely put her well into the 20th Century. Any thoughts on this would be welcome, since I have a good number of these. Regardless, I think it’s a strong image worth looking at.
