Your size requirement is quite limiting, and like 75footubi, I would recommend against it unless you have giant wrists (like 7.5"+ around or 55mm+ wide).
If it must be, I recommend this Casio Edifice. Listing says 45.5mm wide, on a stainless steel band. Flight computer styling (for pilots), it's inexpensive but it's from Casio's Edifice line, which are fine for what they are.
If you don't like that particular style, just search Amazon for more Casio Edifice watches, they do have larger sized watches. You might also find something you like from Citizen's offerings, but I haven't found one that exceeds around 42-43mm at the price point.
As for the solid links I think so, but the end links on this Nighthawk-esque Casio Edifice look stamped.
The only reference I can find to Casio and solid end links is to this watch and its color variants. I would also like to add that is is very size adjustable. I have small wrists @ 6.25" and removed several links to get it to my size, and still have three more I could remove.
I present to you my budget watch collection!

Skagen 430LSX Variant
This was my 5 year gift from Best Buy, and I wore it every day for almost 6 years. it was sleek, and functional, and I got almost daily comments on it. I enjoyed it, and I still wear it on occasion, but some time last year, I started poking around, and getting the itch. All off a sudden I was lurking here, and poking around on watch blogs, and as if all at once, a new hobby was birthed.
My third watch, once I became more educated on watches and how to wear them, I really wanted to get my hands on a casual, weekend watch. One that I could wear with jeans and a shirt. This really fit the bill, and I love that I can swap out the strap super easy. I wear a different tie every day, so it's nice to carry that over into the weekend as well. Yeah, it's loud, but I grew up in a home with pendulum clocks in every room, so it's practically silent in that regard.
Gemony Straps I got on super sale, another random strap that came with the Rider
Rider GT&FQ M002 (Nomos Knockoff)
After much deliberation, my grail watch was decided upon, as the Nomos Ludwig 38. This is not that watch, obviously. I fell in love quickly with the Bauhaus style watch, and as a father of 2 on a single income, it's going to take some time to reach the point of getting my hand on a genuine German Made Bauhaus. So I went with the Chinese knockoff. There is a direct knockoff of the Ludwig, but I decided to go with the Arabic numerals, because I wanted to keep the grail that more special. I also grabbed a Fluco suede brown strap to spruce it up a bit. It is by far my favorite watch I own, and I keep having to find reasons not the wear it (such as all the other watches I love).
Skagen Archer Chronograph
This was my second watch. After the quality displayed by my first Skagen, and my initial worry about an automatic being a bit too thick, I went with this quartz chrono. It's a bit flashy, and I love the seamless transition to the leather strap. Of course as my first chronograph, for the first moth I was timing everything, but that has since slowed down, and now I just use it to make the perfect cup of tea, and time awkward silence in meetings. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase, as it gives me a second dress watch to swap out with the Rider at work. between these two, my Monday-Thursday is set.
This started as a big blue walmart watch for Christmas from my Grandmother. Bless her heart, she really wanted to get me a nice watch. I just didn't like it though, it was a bit too flashy, and was huge, even on my moderately sized wrists. Thankfully she included the receipt, so that I could swap it out for something else. I was able to do just that, got cash back, and went online to find a new watch that was still in the spirit of her gift: Bracelet, Blue, Simple Faced. I ran across this guy on Amazon, and I know it was the right fit! I added $20 to her money, and secured my first Seiko 5! I do like it a lot, and the date is far easier to read than on the Skagen, and I think that this is probably one of my most versatile watches. easily work on casual Friday with an oxford shirt and jeans, as well as with a sweater on the weekends. I'm also a big fan of the yellow (? colorblind) accents on the second hand and numbers.
Well, there you have it, my humble collection, built on almost no budget.
I'm looking at for my next purchase to be a big busy watch with a slide rule, there's a Casio Ediface, and a Seiko that I've got my eye on... or if I decide to spend some real money, a sub grail of mine, the Citizen Red Arrows Chrono AT
So I am looking for a watch like this one linked here which is unfortunately out of stock
Citizen Chronograph, 44mm. I'm fine with a black dial or a blue dial. Going for something similar to a Omega Speedmaster but not exactly. I LOVE the aesthetic of the linked watch. Speedmaster's indications are a little thin for my preference.
Preferably 44-45mm. Although I have a small wrist, I like the legibility of a 44mm. Quartz is preferred (sorry, automatics aren't in my price range).
Under $250 Canadian as well if possible, as that's where I currently am.
Any recommendations for a pilot chronograph with a slide rule? The Seiko Flightmaster is a little too small. Is the Casio Edifice EF527D-1AV good? link Look wise I love it. Again would prefer 44mm, but 42mm should be fine too.
It's currently between that and Casio Men's EF527D-1AV Edifice Stainless Steel Multi-Function Watch [link]
This Casio is less than $100 on Amazon. I love mine!
Well, if you're in the U.S. Military, you can always check out these NSNs...
But Casio makes one as well, bit cheaper:
