With Father's Day rapidly approaching, many people will be on the look out for a great present and watches will be at the top of lots of lists.

To help if you're on the lookout, a survey by a leading US review site has just named the ever-reliable Casio and Timex as makers of the 'best affordable watches'.

With the only criteria being that the watches had to cost less than $35 (£22.50), the study by Cheapism.com named the two brands came in the top spots for both men's and women's watches.

For men, the Timex Easy Reader T20041 and the Casio WS210HD-1AVCF stood out ahead of the pack, while for women the no-nonsense analogue Timex Easy Reader and the digital Casio WS210HD-1AVCF came out winners.

Researchers at Cheapism.com praised the watches for the style and comfort as well as their value for money and durability, while the digital watches were commended for their smart features.

"All the top picks boast battery-powered quartz movement and mineral crystal covers, and are water resistant up to at least 99 feet," the report added.
