What Customers Are Saying

Greg W.

Thanks Jacek 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!


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.

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).
