The No-Limits range are pretty specialized when it comes to parts, so I'd contact Sector and ask their advice via their web form, they should be able to give you the name of someone in the UK that can help....   https://www.sectornolimits.com/en/contacts.html

They don't seem very expensive, I'd just replace the whole watch if I were you. Most watch repair costs so much I just don't think that watch is worth the money invested into the repair. Unless it's got done kind of sentimental value.

The last watch I had the 'crystal' replaced on ...

I have done a couple myself since - both glass and acrylic - and acrylic is easy because no gasket required, and you can seal it for life with the faintest smear of UV curing crystal adhesive if you really want to.  You do need a crystal replacing tool though, to do it right, if you use glue you could get away with a friction fit.  The crystal replacement tool is easy to use. 

The glass one I was so pleased, pressing it into the gasket dead straight and true first time, and then I smashed it putting the back on ...

So my advice would be, replace the crystal on the watch you have with acrylic, sell it on eBay, and use the money to buy a new watch.
