Give this a try...

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.CustomFieldManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.MutableIssue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.watchers.WatcherManager
   
CustomFieldManager customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
field_value = issue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("CUSTOM FIELD NAME"))
WatcherManager watcherManager = ComponentAccessor.getWatcherManager()
watcherManager.startWatching(field_value, issue)
