The Canaries had gone into the game knowing that a victory would put them clear at the top of the table - but an opener from Scott Fitzgerald 24 minutes in and a second half penalty by Neil Cox gave Watford an unassailable lead.
Ryan Jarvis did grab one back for the home side, but the 2-1 defeat ended an amazing 100 percent record at home for Norwich.
Elsewhere, Reading's Andy Hughes missed a penalty, but The Royals still picked up all three points with a 1-0 home win over Millwall.
John Salako grabbed the crucial goal for Reading - and fans of the club will be delighted that they have leapfrogged West Ham - the club that took their manager Alan Pardew.
Derby County picked up a 2-0 victory against Burnley at Pride Park - in an open game that saw both sides miss good chances.
A rare moment of quality in the final third saw Lee Morris spring the offside trap and finish with aplomb in the first half.
The second half saw Arthur Gnohere dismissed for a professional foul, and Ian Taylor notch an injury time penalty, after Morris had been felled by Brian Jensen in the box.
Bottom side Wimbledon grabbed a rare away win, with Gillingham beaten 2-1 at Priestfield Stadium.
Adam Nowland scored a first half opener for The Dons, only for Nyron Nosworthy to level for Gillingham.
However, a second half goal from Patrick Agyemang wrapped up a fine win for the visitors.
