What Customers Are Saying

Adam K.

New York, NY

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.


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.


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.
