What Customers Are Saying

John B.

London, United Kingdom

Scott 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!

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.

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!
