Until 2008, the Scotland cricket team was made up of amateurs, players did not have contracts with the game’s governing body in the country, Cricket Scotland, and balanced their sports careers with full-time jobs. Cricket Scotland began professionalising the national team in 2008 with the introduction of contracts for three of its players. Watson was one of the three along with fast-bowlers Gordon Goudie and Dewald Nel. A year later Watson turned down a contract extension with Cricket Scotland to pursue employment outside cricket.

At the end of the 2011 season Watson announced he was retiring from all forms of cricket. During his career Watson scored over 5,000 runs for his country and shares the accolade of a record 194 caps with former team mate Craig Wright who said “Ryan has been one of the most influential batsmen for Scotland in the last 10 years with numerous match winning innings for us”.
