What Customers Are Saying

Lester D.

Chapel Hill, NC

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.

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!
