Chester Watson was a wristy fast bowler who took wickets, but was expensive in the process. His approach to the wicket was smooth, and he was reckoned to be only fractionally slower than Wes Hall, with a devastating yorker. He made his debut against England in 1959-60, playing in all five Tests and taking 16 wickets, and he then went to Australia in 1960-61 where he played once. His final outing came at home to India in 1961-62. He played in the Lancashire Leagues for Church from 1961, and as he rarely returned to the Caribbean, that effectively ended his international claims. While in Lancashire he qualified as an accountant, and when his playing career ended he traveled the world in that capacity. He subsequently became chairman of the Jamaican Board of Control.
