How to change watchers based on the value of a custom field?

I have a custom field on my issues named 'Discipline' with values like "Engineering", "Art", and "Design".  This field represents the deparment that will need to complete the work described in the issue.  Each of these departments has a lead defined in the project's roles. 

I want the department leads to receive notification emails on important events for the issues assigned to their department.  It would be great if I could make the department lead a watcher of an issue based on the value of the 'Discipline' custom field. 

Is there a way to change issue watchers based on the value of a custom field?
