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.


Jason D.

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!
