If you are on JIRA 6.x, click on the number instead of the link at the Watcher field.

the watcher option look like this " watcher(1)" just you need to click on number 1 then it will display inline popup ther you can enter user name

check this doc for more info

Note : you shou'd have "Manage Watchers" permission on project permission scheme

Check your permission scheme who has the permission to add watchers.

Assuming you have this permission, then go to More Actions on the view issue screen and click on watchers, you will be able to add others as watchers from there.
