After T50615: Options form at the top of Special:Watchlist needs cleanup, Special:Watchlist uses a select dropdown for the "Show last:" option. Unfortunately, the value of Special:Preferences isn't added to the list of available options. This wasn't a problem, as long as the option was a link only, but now, as a form, the default selected value will be submitted whenever an user want to change another option. As a solution, the form should add the preferences value as an option to the select list and select it as a default.
