Sector model 31723 broken stem
An independent watch repairman (used to be one at every jewelry store) can probably replace the stem of your watch for far less money, depending the damage you describe. I suspect that the high repair price given to you by Sector means that they would simply drop a brand new movement into your watch and give it back to you. In most cases, though, a replacement stem wholesales for $7-20, and you might be looking at $30-75 in labor, depending on where you live and the type of watch repair shop you're able to find.
When looking for a repair place, I would stay away from the big chain jewelry stores--and also the "while you wait" watch battery shops. Neither of those operations typically has an in-house person with the right expertise to fix your watch.
When all is said and done, it is possible that the nature of the stem break will require more expensive repairs to your watch. A good repairman will tell you if that's the case. Even then, $400 seems very high to fix this problem. In the old days of even 10 years ago, this would be a $25 repair!
Best of luck with your quest.

How a chronograph watch works?
Probably your watch has a screwdown crown and prior to attempt any
settings you have to unscrew it. Some peoples fingers are stronger then
others, so, try that with a pair of plyers. Cover your crown with a
soft cloth and then grip with plyers(this will avoid any damage).
Thread is right handed and unscrewing is done by turning the crown
After setting the time don't forget to screw the crown back- it is for water resistance.
If you are unable to unscrew the crown, that means your watch is rusty and you will need watchmakers help.
If the watch is rusty, you can brake the crown off while trying to
unscrew it. Don't panic yet, as in this case you will need a watchmaker
