In 1848 the Piedmont government creates a school in Cluses (France) for Royal watches that quickly becomes the center for teaching the art and skill of making clocks. On the eve of 1914, the school is the most famous of the three existing national institutions and begins international recruitment. From this institution men were born who will make the reputation of the valley such as Louis Carpano.

 

Louis, a top graduate of Cluses Royal School of Watch Making (1848-1948), went on to do many things including buying the watchmaking school. He then expanded the courses to include being a training center for young people, It was also made into a center for higher learning of new technologies for businesses. One might say that if not for Louis Carpano, many things may not have been so grand, even to this day!
