The Watchers is a 1960 bronze sculpture by the British sculptor Lynn Chadwick depicting three abstracted figures. Multiple castings were made from this mould. One of these castings is installed in the San Diego Museum of Art's May S. Marcy Sculpture Garden, in the U.S. state of California. The work was gifted to SDMA by Jacquelyn Littlefield in 2002.

Another casting was installed at Roehampton University in London, but one of the three figures was stolen in 2006. This was part of a series of thefts of large public art in the United Kingdom, possibly to be sold as scrap metal. Another casting may also be found at Loughborough University.
