“Wealth, style, flamboyance, and a collection of the most outstanding multi-million-dollar watches are found in abundance within Asia’s richest clan—the Ambanis. Forbes lists Mukesh Ambani, the Reliance Industries chairman, with a staggering net worth of $111 billion, and his family members certainly live up to this ultra-rich status. Whether they are spotted in the most extravagant custom cars, traveling in private jets, or making time stand still with their exquisite timepieces, the Ambanis epitomize luxury.


Radhika Merchant, the newest addition to this affluent family, is a shining example of their refined taste. As the fiancée of Vantara-founder Anant Ambani, who is passionate about animal welfare and exceptional timepieces, Radhika recently turned heads in Cannes during her four-day cruise extravaganza, the second edition of her pre-wedding festivities.
