With over 62 years of dedicated retail experience, Time Center is blessed to be the strongest luxury and lifestyle retailer in Jordan. The company started by the late Nasouh Kayali in 1952 with one shop in Downtown Amman, one brand and two employees. Nasouh Kayali was a visionary who had a dream of becoming the leading watch and jewelry retailer in Jordan. He has taught us (my brother and I) the value of hard work, discipline and believing in your dreams. His vision of becoming the leading lifestyle retailer in Jordan has been carried by the second generation and the baton will be passed for generations to come. The legacy will be forever continued. It is because of him that we are where we are today, with over 40 international brands, 150 employees and 29 stores. Our mission is to keep excelling and in becoming a benchmark for the highest standards of client service in Jordan. We believe in working hard as a family to provide our clients with the best possible retail experience and the highest standards of service of our business. Our culture and employees are our backbone, and they all contribute to the overall success of our business Our vision for the future is very optimistic, we believe there are a lot of untapped potential in the market and hence and we are aiming to diversify our retail operation horizontally into different sectors.
Through its sixty-year history, Time Center has grown from a small shop in Downtown Amman to become the watch specialists they are today. The Company's journey is due to the Kayali family's passion for watchmaking and determination to be the best. Today, Time Center can proudly say that they are Jordan's leading watch retailer. Originally found in the early 1950s, Time Center is the product of the Kayali family's passion, which has now spanned three generations. In 1952, Nasouh Kayali opened a small store under the name Nasouh Kayali Company that sold watches and gold in the downtown area of Amman. A champion of family value and tradition, Nasouh Kayali made sure his sons, Samir and Tareq, were involved in the family business from early on, teaching them lessons that would prove to be invaluable in their later careers.
Under the brand Time Center, the company has blossomed into Jordan’s leading watch retailer with a portfolio of over 40 international watch brands, including haute horlogerie brands, 15 mono-brand boutiques, 12 multi-brand boutiques across Jordan's 4 main cities, and over 150 employees with spectacular management offices situated in the heart of Amman.
In keeping with the family tradition, the newest generation of the Kayali family now also work at Time Center infusing their fresh ideas and creativity into the company culture, while still maintaining their family’s core values of ethics, excellence, refinement, and most importantly, passion for fine watchmaking.
