What Customers Are Saying

Lester D.

Chapel Hill, NC

I came across their site after seeing a Paul Newman Daytona on Uncrate. I’ve been looking ever since and I must say their prices are very very good.

Once I found what I was looking for, I emailed them and Scott was very prompt to respond. Payment and shipping was seamless.


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.


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).
