I have known about Seiko for years, indeed since my years in Aden, Yemen, when one of my relatives Qassem Abdo Ghanem won the agency for that country and it soon became a best seller because it was cheap in price and also a good watch. The other watch was the West End, made in Switzerland.
Al-Husseini also had its agency together with Orient and the Indian Titan, which is fairly popular among the Indian community here. The group is at present one of the top Saudi companies ranking 81 out of the top l00 and has 10 branches plus 3,000 dealers in the country.
The company was established in l950 and soon Sheikh Abdul Rahman heard about the watch market in Kuwait and went there to buy 40 pieces that he could not sell in the Saudi market except after a long time.
