    It was very interesting "Was" = past tense - cannot be used after "watch" which is present tense.
    It is very interesting

    How about this

    I went to New York. I went to the Skrey Building

    It was an old building Here the building still exists even though the action is in the past, so the present tense should be used.
    It is an old building.
