Alternative to the 20mm f/1.7:  Check out the Leica (branded) 25mm f/1.4 for micro 4/3.  It's bigger, but it's an amazing lens.

I don't think I can help you decide what you yourself want.  The Nikon 1 has a substantially smaller sensor than micro 4/3, which might not be a good thing.  I may be unfair, but I think of it more as a Panasonic LX7 with interchangeable lenses.

Despite saying that you don't need a viewfinder, I know I do and I think you should. Some small cameras have an electronic viewfinder.  Current Panasonic model is the G6, last years model with a built in EVF is the G5 - still available. An intriguing small camera with a built in EVF is the Sony NEX-6.  That might just blow your budget, and of course the lenses are larger (for APS-C sensor) and fewer than the micro four thirds equivalent field of view lenses.
