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.


Skip M.

Valparaiso, IN

Working with Jacek, Scott, and Kazu 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 Jacek 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.
