Sorry for the confusion here - this part of the API changed when we moved "watching" to mean "starring" and is explained in this post from the API blog:
`watchers` corresponds to the number of users that have starred a repository, while `subscribers_count` corresponds to the number of watchers. For example, looking at the Atom repository:
