On further investigation I found:

Package: checkinstall
Priority: optional
Section: admin
Installed-Size: 536
Maintainer: Felipe Sateler <fsateler@gmail.com>
Architecture: i386
Version: 1.6.1-1
Replaces: installwatch
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6), file, findutils (>= 4.2)
Suggests: gettext
Conflicts: installwatch
Filename: pool/main/c/checkinstall/checkinstall_1.6.1-1_i386.deb
Size: 110430

It seems that checkinstall is the replacement for installwatch, which is
probably why I never heard of it before.
