LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprout, the leader in eco-friendly timepieces, is proud to announce their new SPROUT ADVANCED CRYSTAL COLLECTION, a unique line of watches available nationwide incorporating ADVANCED CRYSTAL, a new lead-free* technology developed by SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS.

ADVANCED CRYSTAL offers unsurpassed brilliance with the highest precision, quality and clarity for flawless beauty.
"We truly believe that an eco-forward lifestyle should be beautiful and full of sparkle and shine," said Marcella Maselli, director of product development for Sprout.
