I got quoted £16 a few years ago. I wouldn't have thought it would cost any more than about £20.

If it's from M&S you can return it to the store and they will do it for £5.00. This happenend to my watch recently and the repair was speedy too!

I had to have a new one put it my watch last month, i had it done at a local jeweller`s and it cost me £14. That was for a plastic one though. Thats now scratched but i`m not replacing it again! I was quoted over £30 for a glass one.

Isn't it crazy that you can buy a watch for a fiver easily but have to pay 3x that for a new face! Might be worth just buying a new watch with same size face and swapping faces over! Loads of different ones for a fiver in Wilkinsons, Asda and many other shops
