Vacheron Con­stantin, the world's old­est Swiss Haute Hor­logerie, will be cel­e­brat­ing In­dian photography in its artis­tic avatar at an ex­hi­bi­tion or­gan­ised in part­ner­ship with Tasveer. Tasveer's eighth sea­son of photography ex­hi­bi­tions around the coun­try in 2013- 14 ex­plores how artists, pho­tog­ra­phers and cu­ra­tors look back at the his­tory of art and rein­ter­pret it for the 21st cen­tury. For Vacheron Con­stantin, the ex­hi­bi­tion is dou­bly mo­men­tous since it em­bod­ies their en­try into the In­dian mar­ket in 1849, when it sold its first watch in In­dia, at around the same time that the pho­to­graph cam­era ar­rived on In­dian shores fol­low­ing its in­ven­tion in Europe.
