Delhi Gets a First Look at the Vacheron Constantin & Raghu Rai Exhibition
There ain’t much that can stop the ticking clock, but why not seize the opportunity to capture a special moment for eternity. This off beat thought process may have well been on the minds of the people at Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Vacheron Constantin, when they decided to partner with Tasveer to celebrate Divine Moments, by photographer Raghu Rai.
The exhibition, which opened its doors in New Delhi on September 14, boasted of a high flying guest list that included Kalyani Chawla, Dilip Cherian, Simar Duggal, Sujata Assomull and Devyani Khosla. The complete range of photographs will later be shipped off to Tasveer and its partner galleries; those in Mumbai, Bangalore and Ahmedabad.
What to Expect
If exquisite timepieces or even aesthetic photography floats your boat, this event is sure to elevate any experience you’ve ever had. The photography finds its crest in the meticulous layout of the exhibition, one that is designed to soothe all your senses—sight, smell, sound, touch and taste. It enables you to truly experience the mood and temperament reflected in the photographs.
The watch making needs no crutch as Vacheron’s extensive experience (250 years) in this space lends the watch display room a never-seen-before technical finesse. Look out for the Vacheron Constantin Calibre 2260; it is sure to set your heart racing. With round, understated case, this timepiece forms the core of the Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-day Tourbillon. Boasting of unprecedented performances, the collector’s item is the first watch by Vacheron Constantin to be approved according to the new Hallmark of Geneva criteria.
The Divine Moments by Raghu Rai exhibition is on till September 25 at the Stainless Art Gallery, in old Ishwar Nagar, Mathura Road, New Delhi.
