watchpoint on Fortran array elements

I have set a watchpoint on a Fortran array element using GDB (version 8.3-7.fc30):

(gdb) watch vec(19)

But listing the watchpoints lists three watchpoints:

(gdb) info watchpoints
Num     Type           Disp Enb Address            What
12      watchpoint     keep y                      vec(19)
12.1                                       y                      vec(19)
12.2                                       y                      vec(19)

I don't understand why there are three watchpoints for a single array element. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
