When it comes to giving compliments, Mark Zuckerberg has the time!

The Meta CEO and his philanthropist wife Priscilla Chan — who made their way to India for billionaire heir Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant's pre-wedding celebration this weekend — really took in the sights of the gathering, as a new viral video shows the pair raving over Ambani's luxury Richard Mille watch.

In the clip shared to X (formerly Twitter), Zuckerberg and Chan, both 39, get a quick glimpse at the groom-to-be's seemingly expensive timepiece. "This watch is fantastic," Chan said, before Zuckerberg added: "I know, I told him already."

"That is so cool," Chan added.

Zuckerberg then explained that while he was never much of a watch guy, Ambani's timepiece may have changed his mind.

"You know, I never really wanted to get a watch, but after seeing that, I was like, 'Watches are cool,'" Zuckerberg said.

Ambani, 28, also confirmed to Chan that the watch was a Richard Mille. While Ambani didn't specify the model, the Daily Mail reports that the watch is believed to be the RMS-10 Tourbillon Koi Fish, featuring 18K rose gold and bezel set diamonds. The New York Post reported that the watch was worth an estimated $1 million, a fraction of the $116 billion that Forbes estimates his father Mukesh Ambani's net worth to be.

Also this weekend, both Zuckerberg and Chan raved about their experience at the three-day pre-wedding celebration itself, as well. The pair shared a few behind-the-scenes looks on Instagram of their matching outfits — which included a blazer with gold dragonfly embellishments and a Sunderbans Tigress shirt from Rahul Mishra Couture for Zuckerberg, and a black dress featuring gold flowers for Chan.

"It's getting wild out here," Zuckerberg captioned one photo, while writing in another caption: "Love an Indian wedding. Congrats to Anant and Radhika."

Ambani and Merchant are set to wed on July 12 in Mumbai, but their pre-wedding bash made international headlines all weekend — from a celebratory performance from Rihanna to appearances from names like Ivanka Trump.

Reuters previously reported that 1,200 guests would be in attendance at the stacked event, where guests were given a detailed, nine-page dress code for the festivities. The dress code included a "jungle fever" theme and a theme that encouraged "dazzling" Indian outfits.

Ambani is the youngest child of Mukesh Ambani, while his soon-to-be wife is the daughter of Encore Healthcare Private Limited CEO Viren Merchant.
