What Customers Are Saying

Skip M.

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!

I’ve purchased multiple pieces from Scott and his team and have never had any problems except my being glued to their website non-stop looking for more. It’s a relief to deal with people that value integrity and quality when it comes to vintage watches (and current pieces also once in awhile).

Keep up the great work HQ and you got a customer for life.
