Default Ebay listings now show number of watchers

Just noticed that when I view an ebay item, the numbers of watchers is shown. Anybody seeing that? I think that is more of an advantage to buyers than it would be to sellers. For example if a buyer sees there are 50 watchers, then he may just not bid because of the probable competition.

See it on the selling side but watchers do not equal bidders. Had an item recently go through 3 cycles with lots of watchers and finally sold for $10.00.

I don't see it within eBay, but there are a couple of sites which will show you this info if you wanted.

http://www.watchcount.com/

If you enter an eBay item number here (I believe the item has to have at least 1 bid on it for it to work), the number of watchers will be displayed.

Oh mine is definitely showing the number of watchers from the bidders angle. As soon as I click on an item up for sale it shows me how many watchers. This just started today? I think the reason some of you are not seeing it is because the item does not have any watchers yet.

Take a look at this auction... It is telling me there are three watchers - about an inch below the 7.99 bid price. I am not selling this item nor do I know who is.
