CARLO (CHARLES) POLUZZI (1899-1978) Born in Seveso, Italy, he moved to Geneva with his family as a child. He specialized in painted on enamel portraits and landscapes, in the style of works from earlier periods. In 1914, Poluzzi became an apprentice at the "Fabrique d'émaux de Genève", while also pursuing studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. He obtained his diploma in 1918 and became a "chef d'atelier" during the next several years. In 1921, Poluzzi became naturalized, settled in Carouge, and set up his own workshop. Little by little, he became one of Geneva's most respected enamel painters, working for all the important watch firms and painting the portraits of many important and influential people. He did some of his most noteworthy work for Rolex and Vacheron & Constantin.
