This rain-affected return match ended as a draw, as had the game between the two teams earlier in the month at Norwich.
Only an hour of play was possible before lunch on the first day, and there was no play on the second day before 2.35 pm.
Watts's innings of 106 for Cambridgeshire contained 12 fours, 8 threes and 6 twos, and lasted 2 hours.
There were 6 fours in Scott's 52 scored in 85 minutes.
In the Cambridgeshire innings, Watts and Scott added 122 for the fifth wicket, which was the highest partnership for that wicket during the season.
Norfolk were an all-amateur team.
