Anant, the son of Asia’s richest man Mukesh Ambani, stunned onlookers by casually walking into a kids’ birthday party wearing a $6 million Richard Mille 56-01 Tourbillon Green Sapphire watch.


Anant Ambani, the scion of Reliance Industries, belongs to the richest family in Asia. His father, Mukesh, is worth $101 billion and controls Reliance Industries. In true tycoon style, Anant was spotted casually strutting around in a Richard Mille 56-01 Tourbillon “Green Sapphire.” It is not only a rare edition of the RM 056 Tourbillon Chronograph Sapphire but also happens to be worth a lot of money that most people don’t even witness in a lifetime. Said to be worth $6 million and decked out in green sapphire, Anant Ambani’s time-telling possession is one of the most expensive price tags ever to be crafted by the Mille brand.


Per Hypebeast, rare green sapphire crystals highlight the watch’s entire winding tourbillon movement. The manual winding tourbillon movement is highlighted thanks to the components that allow as much light as possible to come into the caliber. The production of this sapphire structure took years of research and testing to ensure an adequate response to the demands of strength and comfort. This complex watch features a manual winding tourbillon movement with hours, minutes, chronograph split seconds, power reserve, torque, and function indicators.

Anant Ambani’s coveted luxury watch collection:

His father, Mukesh Ambani, may be Asia’s richest man who makes do with an $8,300 Rolex, but Anant Ambani has shown an ultra-expensive taste and more than makes up for his father’s lack of fancy watches.

As a matter of fact, the heir owns a completely iced iteration of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Double Balance Wheel Openworked worth $3.3 million.

If anything can top these two aforementioned examples, it is Ambani’s $9 million Patek Philippe. With a total of 20 complications, the Patek Philippe Grandmaster Chime Reference 6300G is touted to be the most complicated Patek wristwatch ever. The youngest Ambani descendant sported this masterpiece at the grand opening of the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) – a first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art venue created to celebrate the rich cultural history of India. A stellar timepiece to match a stupendous occasion. With his impending nuptials to his childhood sweetheart, we wonder if his wrists will sport his best timepieces yet.
