U m m S a i d S t o r e

Founded initially in Souk Waqef in 1958, the original Al Jaber  store was none other than the Umm-Said Store in Al Jesra. Its  founder, Mr. Yousef Jaber Mohamad Al Jaber, had a distinct  vision: to provide the finest quality of watches in Qatar. The  center had already gained a healthy reputation by the general  public for its extensive collection of stamps, watches and pens,  but fifty five years later, time has shaped Al Jaber Watches into  what it is today- the leading watch supplier in selection and  expertise.

These words have been the first seed for understanding the local market.
