The OEM faucet should be a Moen brand. The issue you will have when you cut it out and try to connect a new one from a EU supplier is that the original pipes are SAE, not metric. If you can get the conversion brass compression fittings just get a high quality single handle. Moen should be available in the UK.

This source seems to have online catalog and ship.. Moen's are more expensive than you'd find walking aisles at US Home Depot or Lowe's Hardware mega-store, but it would match US SAE Threads on Airstream plastic piping...

faucets
 
I replaced mine with new ones. It depends if you want orig. or just new. I put a single lever high gooseneck style in the kitchen and a standard sinlge lever in the bathroom sink. They were acctually european. Just adapt to fit. Only thing is you have to get the right spacing for the counter holes. I only needed 1 hole and I bought an crome adapter trim plate the covered the other 2 holes.

The Moen faucet used in many of the AS from the 70's came with the sink from moen and have an unusual diameter that is smaller than the typical 13/8" faucet diameter. If you still have the faucet your best bet is to rebuild it. Moen will sent the parts free of charge they have a lifetime warranty.
