    I'd agree with the Nodus Contrail and if you can stretch your budget a tad a 38mm Christopher Ward Trident Pro or GMT.

    If he can stretch the budget, the 38mm GMT/diver you're selling would be a perfect companion.

    SKX013 since you mentioned Seiko specifically.

    Re: Tool Watch for Travel - and a small wrist.

    Since the OP seems to have a wrist that supports 47 - 48mm cases, some info on suggestions above:

    Helson: A worthy dive watch, based on the expected detail on their web site. Diving is a precise activity, so serious dive watch companies provide details. Helson seems to do that.

    Comparing case diameter to case size on some Helson's, doing a quick look:
    Diameter Case size
    38 46 or 47mm
    40 50mm
    42 51mm

    Steinhart "39": case size 46 or 47mm

    Seiko SKX013: 44mm
    Note on the Seiko: case is about 1.5 mm less than the 007. The dial on the 13 is very small. If you can wear a 13, you may be able to fit a 007, and have a easier to read dial.

    Some comparisons: Giant new Turtle, SKX007, SKX013

    I'm sure you are already looking at the little Seiko's by now.

    Some of you must be providing L2L measurements. The SKX013 is 38mm in diameter and the 007 is 42mm.

    I have the 114270 - 36mm case, 44mm lug to lug.

    Thank you for the reminder on the SKX013 - I had forgotten about that!

    Yes, case size, or lug to lug, is for determining fit. The SKX uses a 44mm case. Bezel diameter is for ascetics. The OP should look for watches with a case size that fits his wrist shape.

    Perfect! The SKX013 is in that size, but does wear a little larger due to the case shape (shallow saucer).
