Thanks for a replay! Like always there is a but. What if I have another iphone with 11.0. Can I use it just to upgrade the watch and than pair again with old phone and add a card? Asking because I need to stay in 10.3 at this one.

No. you can't pair a watch running a newer iOS version with an iPhone running an older version (for example, you cannot pair a watch running watchOS 4 with an iPhone running iOS 10 or earlier. The iPhone must be running iOS 11).
