git: copy a worktree of a remote branch that is not present at local

At work, I have a project that it has two different version with some common basic features. I make use of

git worktree
to put these versions in separate folders that I have two long-running branches beside
master
for each version and the
master
is for common features. So there are 3 folders with one repository. Also, there is a remote repository for this and the whole things are pushed there.

$git branch -a
*master
version-1
version-2
remote/origin/master
remote/origin/version-1
remote/origin/version-2


At home PC, I have the folder of
master
and this local repository is linked to the same remote as my work repo. And when I get the list of branches it is like:

$git branch -a
*master
remote/origin/master
remote/origin/version-1
remote/origin/version-2


I want to
checkout
to the
version-1
as well as copy the whole stuff of version-a to a local folder, that the folder is tracked by git as a
worktree
like at my work.
does
git clone
or
git checkout
do that or I need to do something more tricky?

Finally I use this to have the same work-trees like at my work, at my home.

$ git worktree add --checkout ../version-1 version-1
$ git worktree add --checkout ../version-2 version-2

It checkout my long-running branches in different folders(work-trees).
