The purpose of the three watchmaking schools in Japan is not to teach students how to make Breitling watches but how to repair them. Even though skilled Breitling watchmakers are always in demand, the economic situation in Japan is such that they have difficulties finding positions for their graduates.

In 2007, Japan imported around breitling Super Avenger replica watches from Switzerland for a value of approximately CHF 1. 207 billion. This is 4. 7% less than in 2006. Even though this downward trend in Swiss watch imports has accelerated in Japan, it remains the third most important market after the USA and Hong Kong for the Swiss watch industry. With the exception of complication watches, most subsidiaries and importers try to repair Breitling watches inside Japan so as to reduce time and the cost of servicing and repairs. In order to meet demand, training watchmakers is a serious matter in Japan.

In 1994, the Breitling Watch Importers Association asked the college to set up a watch repair course, given the shortage of watchmakers who knew how to repair Swiss mechanical watches.

Of course, the development of quartz had an impact. In 1996, replica breitling bentley flying b launched the Hiko Mizuno Watchmaking School. Three years later the school launched a WOSTEP course, making it the first WOSTEP partner-school in Asia.
