What Customers Are Saying

Adam K.

New York, NY

Buying vintage is all about buying the seller. In this case, HQ Milton is the best in the game when it comes to Rolex.

Amazing customer service. Straight shooters. Watch was perfectly described. Thanks guys! Couldn’t be any happier.


David B.

Seattle, WA

In general, there are a lot of low-integrity people dealing in high-end watches looking to take advantage of new/budding collectors who want to buy their first or second serious timepiece. HQ Milton is the opposite of that.

My entire transaction with this group was professional, speedy, and honest, and the price was very fair. HQ Milton is an excellent business. Buy with confidence.


Jen C.

The staff is super knowledgable and friendly. Best experience ever in learning and buying a watch.

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a Rolex. You will learn everything about your watch and then some, talk about an awesome experience.
