What Customers Are Saying

Jason D.

Scott was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, breaking down each piece I was taking a look at. I am proud to have purchased a beautiful vintage timepiece for my father on his birthday, and he was in love with it to say the least.

Will definitely be coming back here in the future!


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.


John C.

I’ve purchased multiple pieces from Scott and his team and have never had any problems except my being glued to their website non-stop looking for more. It’s a relief to deal with people that value integrity and quality when it comes to vintage watches (and current pieces also once in awhile).

Keep up the great work HQ and you got a customer for life.
