What Customers Are Saying

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.

Kazu was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, breaking down each piece I was taking a look at. I am proud to have purchased a beautiful vintage timepiece for my father on his birthday, and he was in love with it to say the least.

Will definitely be coming back here in the future!

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!
