Ellen Stoffels is responsible for the editorial organisation of 00/24 Horloges and 00/24 WatchWorld UK and 00/24 WatchWorld Scandinavia.

Denim has been on a steady rise for years now and looks to be unstoppable. Jeans wear has worked its way up from being prison work wear to be used in tailor-made suits you can wear in the boardroom of a well respected Forbes 500 company.
