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.


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!


Albert L.

USA

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).
