Sure you can!  

The Apple Watch can be connected to WiFi independent of your IPhone?  Are you sure?  I know that some IPhone models can be connected to Cell service.  I am not saying that you are wrong, but I am just clarifying.

 

Thank you.

From Apple Support:  When your iPhone is off or out of range, your Apple Watch can use a Wi-Fi network to send and receive data. And if your watch is equipped with cellular, it can connect to a cellular network. If your Apple Watch is connected to Wi-Fi, the Wi-Fi icon appears in Control Center.

Second attempt

success!

1) send yourself iMessages with http://login.com and http://logout.com

2) On watch goto Settings > WiFi. Choose medallionNet

3) turn off WiFi on phone

4) on watch, goto messages an click the login.com link

5) login on watch, follow instructions.

 

this will only work if you have an unused medallionNet connection available.

 

use the logout.com link to remove the watch or phone from medallionNet

 

hope this helps

Update, there may be issues switching back and forth between being connected directly and via the phone.

Why do you want to take your watch and not your iPhone? Does the iOS app have a watch version? If not, then the only messages and notifications will be the usual ones and those generated through the OM system. 

 

And, if your watch would re-sync time in every port. You would lose the all important "Ship Time".
