What Customers Are Saying

Albert L.

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).

Working with Scott, and Justin was an excellent experience.

They worked with me on a trade and gave me an excellent price on a Rolex. The Rolex was in amazing condition just as described. I’m amazed at how quickly I got responses from Scott too. For as busy as he is, I never felt like he was dealing with anyone other than me over the course of the several day transaction.

Thanks Scott 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!
