Maybe. What's your use case exactly.
In other tools that have --verbose output,
there is the opportunity to distinguish operations,
or identify when possible long running operations are finished.
Neither is the case though for touch.

If you just wanted to see each block of files
that touch is processing, perhaps using tee would suffice like?

  find ... | tee /dev/tty | xargs touch ...
