You might want to have a look at rQuestWatchFrameMover. I know you said you didn't want to use an addon, and I know there are scripts you can run, maybe even a macro, to move the watch frame, but this is small and efficient. Zork's (the addons author) stuff is always efficient, although there is no possible way to make some of the stuff he does "small".

That was fast In the Chinchilla questwatch module i don't really know what to pick out and use. Roth's addon is great, however there doesn't seem to be any way to lock the position.
Phanx: That was just what i'm after! So if i put this in a file, will this work?
Code:
local f,n=WatchFrame,function()end 
	f:ClearAllPoints() 
	f:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", UIParent, "TOPLEFT", 30, 17) 
	f.ClearAllPoints,f.SetPoint=n,n

Yes, though if you're putting it in a file, I'd suggest reformatting it for better readability:

Code:
-- Move it:
WatchFrame:ClearAllPoints()
WatchFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", UIParent, "TOPLEFT", 30, 17)

-- Stop the default UI from moving it back:
local noop = function() end
WatchFrame.ClearAllPoints = noop
WatchFrame.SetPoint = noop
