As a form of identification, each Watcher wore a bluish tattoo (stylized Zodiac sign of Aries inside a circle) on their forearm/inner wrist.  Centuries ago, however, Watchers wore a medallion symbol of their organization.

The Watchers were created 5000 year ago to observe, record but never interfere with the lives of a group of immortal beings who roamed the Earth unbeknownst to most humans. Ammaletu the Akkadian created the Watchers after he saw Gilgamesh resurrected from the dead.

Those working for the Watchers group swore an oath that under no circumstance would they reveal their existence to the immortals.

Joe Dawson (Jim Byrnes), the owner of bookstore/small blues bar was one of the many Watchers of this organization. He chose to disregard the code of non-fraternization and become friends with Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul), an immortal born in the Highlands of Scotland in the year 1592. Joe had been tracking MacLeod for fifteen years. before Duncan traveled to Seacouver, Washington to track down Darius' killer.

While the goals of the Watchers organization were benign, there were some fanatics in the group who sought to harm the Immortals. These fanatics were known as Hunters.

The Hunters were originally led by James Horton who believed the Immortals were unnatural and needed to be destroyed. He feared that the victor of the Immortal's final battle (The Gathering) would try to control the world. Horton killed Darius.
