What Customers Are Saying

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).


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!


Adam K.

Buying vintage is all about buying the seller. In this case, HQ Milton is the best in the game when it comes to Rolex.

Amazing customer service. Straight shooters. Watch was perfectly described. Thanks guys! Couldn’t be any happier.
