Hi all, I'm in need of some assistance!

With Christmas approaching, I've been asked for a few things that I would like. One of the first things I thought of was a new branded sport watch!

I'm looking for a sport watch. That's about the main thing I have to go on. I'm mainly looking for something that would make me to attract and looks pretty. The catch though - it needs to be inexpensive.

I'm aware there are a lot of options out there, and the cost is pretty varied. As this is something someone else will be buying, I don't want them to have to spend a lot, but would like to be able to suggest something that's pretty decent quality that I can use for several years.

All suggestions are welcome and will be looked in to. Thanks all! :)"

To make it easier for the folks here to give useful suggestions. OP might want to let everyone know the following:
1. Budget
2. Size
3. Type of sports watch e.g. diver, military, pilot etc
4. Any required complications
5. Strap or bracelet

My suggestion, get the Orient Flight, its a pilot watch with a work horse automatic movement and available in several dial colors- black, blue, green and cream; so i am sure you can find one to your liking. It is 42mm in diameter which isn't too large for most wrists and comes standard on a leather strap, but with 22mm lugs, you will be able to easily buy a silicone strap for it and with a 100m water resistance it should be able to go where ever you take it so long you don't dive with it.

if you don't mind a non-mechanical, the Citizen Eco-drive Aviator AW1360-04E is also a great choice, comes in a few different color combinations.

OP: if you think you want to get into watches and the associated hobby, camaraderie, and cost, then scan the WRUW thread here in Affordables and/or Chinese and/or Russian, pick a nice mechanical, and off you go. You've already heard a number of suggestions, but the Seiko folks haven't chimed in yet, and I don't think I've seen any rec's yet for the usual Affordable go-to's with russian and chinese movements.

On the other hand, if you're not into the mechanical thing, save yourself the bother and focus on quartz movements. They're affordable and accurate and certainly less trouble.

Hello and welcome!
If you want a chronograph, then your best bet is a Seiko Solar or quartz for your budget. People around here like them, though I don't own any.

SSC017 (you can change the bracelet to a silicone/rubber strap easily):

Citizen is another company that you might want to look into.

Any of those trip your trigger?

Casio EF-503 (Sporty, chrono, omega speedmaster homage, super reliable quartz) comes in many colour combinations but the orange and blue is the rarest of the lot and in my opinion the best looking variant.

watches are very simple and awesome, the cost is very less but need more reviews on it ???
They're fine, minimalist quartz watches you can buy in nearly any department store. I've owned a few. They're thin. The coating on the mesh straps comes off really quickly. I think one of mine died relatively early, but whatever.
I wouldn't call most of their models "sporty," their size and thinness trend toward the dressy / casual dress side.
