What Customers Are Saying

Jason D.

USA

Scott 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!


Albert L.

USA

Top-shelf experience all around. They and the rest of the staff were all terrific – casual but professional, clearly very knowledgeable, with zero sales-y-ness and no frills. And the watch is exactly true to the pictures provided on the website.

Would highly recommend to others (including myself but I don’t think the wife would approve of a second visit anytime soon).


John C.

USA

I’ve purchased multiple pieces from Scott and his team and have never had any problems except my being glued to their website non-stop looking for more. It’s a relief to deal with people that value integrity and quality when it comes to vintage watches (and current pieces also once in awhile).

Keep up the great work HQ and you got a customer for life.
