What Customers Are Saying

Robert E.

Wilmington, NC

Overall, this was a truly fantastic experience buying a vintage watch. I was very happy with the advice and and my purchase in the end. HQ Milton has earned their reputation and my experience lived up to expectations.

Before I purchased the watch of interest I scoured the Internet and could not find a comparable price for what I purchased. I’ll be back.


Skip M.

Valparaiso, IN

Working with Scott, and Justin was an excellent experience.

They worked with me on a trade and gave me an excellent price on a Rolex. The Rolex was in amazing condition just as described. I’m amazed at how quickly I got responses from Scott too. For as busy as he is, I never felt like he was dealing with anyone other than me over the course of the several day transaction.


Albert L.

USA

Top-shelf experience all around. They and the rest of the staff were all terrific – casual but professional, clearly very knowledgeable, with zero sales-y-ness and no frills. And the watch is exactly true to the pictures provided on the website.

Would highly recommend to others (including myself but I don’t think the wife would approve of a second visit anytime soon).
