What Customers Are Saying

Skip M.

Valparaiso, IN

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.

I came across their site after seeing a Paul Newman Daytona on Uncrate. I’ve been looking ever since and I must say their prices are very very good.

Once I found what I was looking for, I emailed them and Scott was very prompt to respond. Payment and shipping was seamless.


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. HQ Milton has 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.
