Thanks Jacek and your Sales Team for your awesome prices and the exceptional Customer service! I will be buying 2 more Rolex watches from you guys this year. Cheers!

If you are looking at buying a Rolex watch, from a vintage Rolex to a newer Rolex, don’t look anywhere else, I highly recommend that you buy from HQ Milton in San Francisco. You will be glad you did!

Kazu 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!
