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. Kazu and HQ Milton have 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.


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.


John B.

London, United Kingdom

Jacek and his team were open, transparent, enthusiastic and friendly. At no point did I feel under any pressure to make a purchase, I was shown literally dozens of beautiful vintage watches - the enthusiasm and passion for what these guys do was evident.

Now I’ve met the team, I’d have no hesitation in dealing with them online, I can honestly say it was a pleasure….they even recommended a great place to eat for my wife and I afterwards!
