Mustard: Whisk together all ingredients, in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours to allow flavors to meld. Burgers: Preheat the grill to high. Form the meat into 4 (8-ounce) burgers. Season the burgers on both sides with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. During the last minutes of cooking add 2 slices of cheese to each burger, cover the grill and let the cheese soften slightly, approximately 1 minute. Put the burgers on the buns, drizzle with some of the mustard and top with a few sprigs of watercress.
