The Armida A1 in 42mm wears mighty small. And there is a 15% discount on right now as well. https://www.armidawatches.com/
Steinhart does the O1 in 39mm so check them out.
The Steinhart 39 is really nice, but vintage tint is a little strong, and the Armida A12 blue looks super at 38mm
Oh, and check the Pbris Morgan "SeaStar" -- almost sold out, so hurry. Looks like a great watch. Will fit small & it's thin too. great kit for the price.

For travel I love a 12-hour bezeled GADA.
Personally, I’d keep an eye out for a pre-owned Nodus SS (12 hour) Black Sand.
12-hour bezel, GADA overall styling, a little pizazz (textured dial), great specs, within size specs, and likely within budget pre-owned.
Something similar can be achieved with an SKX007 mod, and maybe also an SKX013 mod (I haven’t checked replacement bezel options for the 013 lately, but there used to be fewer).
A SARB033 could also fit the bill. No 12-hour and a tad dressier, but it’s a classy GADA on different straps.
For a true GMT, I really like the Zelos Horizons and Steinhart 39 Ocean One Premium, both of which could probably be had within budget pre-owned. They also satisfy your other criteria.
For straight diver, I like the NTH Subs and CW Trident Pro 600s. Same comments regarding pre-owned and specs fit with your criteria.

Unfortunately for the OP.... and me ... the Everest uses a 50mm case.
But if the OP is interest in a vintage re-edition, the PRS 82 uses a 47mm case. I also had a PRS 18, which is also uses a 47mm case.
