It seems you have been lucky, because I cannot reproduce your success.  
The most I could get using your proposal is have GDB print a message that 
a watchpoint ``was deleted since the program exited its scope'', and once 
I even saw a message that the program has received SIGTRAP (I guess that 
SIGTRAP was the watchpoint which fired).

Could you please post a short program and a detailed procedure to get 
watchpoints to work on that program?  Thanks in advance.
