12 year old boys can be tricky to buy for. They aren't little kids anymore, and they are not in the "Tween or Teen" aged groups, so when it comes to watches, its easy to feel a little lost.
Although boys this age are maturing, they are not to the point where I'd trust them with anything too fragile or expensive for wrist wear.
If he happens to have a favorite sports team, I'd recommend a team watch like the ones at Fansedge. These come in Mens and Youth sizes and practically any team so there is one for anyone. (Starting at about $24.99 for the Mens, $17.99 youth).
For a more outdoorsy boy, try one of the Timex selections like the Timex Kids' Camouflage Digital Stretch Band Watch. This 4 star watch is less than $20.00 on Amazon and is sure to keep up with him and his adventures
Finally, for a casual-school day look try the Nike Kids Triax Fly Watch. Another 4 star watch, this black yet sleek look offers a digital display and easy to read face. See it at Amazon for less than $40.00
Finally, if you're looking at a more dressy watch, I'd go with something like the Fossil brand watches. These are affordable but super stylish! I particularly like the Fossil Men's Digital "Man" Bracelet Watch. Only $25.00-you save 50%. This silver watch features a link style band in silver and black and shows a chartoon character on the face. Grown up enough for a nice night out, but still fun! For something more basic, try the Fossil Men's Stainless Steel watch in silver and navy. This is a basic dressy watch that is also waterproof- just in case : )

I hope this helps find the perfect watch!
Thanks : )
