Possessive case pronouns have a s without an apostrophe; so is this correct "It's hers watch". If not why and also in which sentences can " hers" be used.

The possessive pronouns that end in the sound /-s/ or /-z/, spell it <-s> with no apostrophe (with the exception of whose and one's).
However, not all possessive pronouns end in the sound /-s/ or /-z/.
In the case of her(s), we use her before a noun, and hers on its own:
- This is her watch.
- This watch is hers.
- Hers is the red one.
It is not grammatical to replace her with hers or vice versa.
