This is an order name composed of a heraldic charge + building.

The OED s.v. watch, n. (21) dates the word "watch" in the sense "a small time-piece" to 1590 in this spelling. The Barony would prefer the sense "sentinel" (12) if this construction is deemed plausible.

Ritterbruder[schaft] des Conventes unseres lieben Frau Ingensande 'Knightly Brotherhood of the Convent of Our Lady at the Sand'

Inclita Stellifera Congregatio nostra militaris apud Sanctum Audoenum in Domo Nobili 'Our Illustrious Starbearing Knightly Congregation in the Noble House at Saint Ouen'

A tower is comparable in scale to a chapel or a noble house. The OED s.v. tower, n.1 dates this spelling to the fifteenth century.
