Gucci 1500L crystal replacement

Question

Hello , I have a Gucci 1500L ladies watch and the crystal / glass has dropped out , sadly never to be seen again.
I wonder if anyone can recommend someone in the UK who could provide and fit a replacement.
I'm in North East Wales.
I do not need any other work carried out such as cleaning, servicing, battery replacement, etc.
The crystal is rectangular with rounded corners and measures approximately 21mm x 8mm. 
I enclose some photos of the watch.
Many thanks
Howard

Any competent watch repair shop/person, even the high street cobblers could fit one only problem with the latter they send them all away if they are not stock sizes.

Hi @highflyer

In the UK a lot of folk will get parts from Cousins UK. For generic crystals there's https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/acrylic-shaped-watch-glasses for instance. Cousins even has specific Gucci crystals at https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/gucci . However your particular crystal seems somewhat unusual and specific being tall and narrow with rounded corners. 

In fact what you're after is https://www.watchmaterial.com/watch-crystal-for-gucci-1500/; also available at https://www.esslinger.com/special-model-watch-crystals/

It might therefore be worth asking Cousins if they can source based on the fact they do other Gucci crystals and if no-one else comes up trumps with a UK source. Failing that you could request one from one of the aforementioned US sites although postage likely to exceed value of crystal unless you can ask for it just to be shoved in an envelope without all the UPS overhead. 😉

If you did take to a watch shop as @watchweasolsuggests clearly it would make sense in this case to get a cost up front; if these crystals are hard to source, and thus incur extra expense, you want to go in with your eyes open.
