I know, it’s the same dang watch again!
But it’s not.
Oh boy, it is not the same watch. This luxury replica A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst does away with the complicated chiming systems of the other two on this list and focuses just on the digital display, the heart of the collection.
And then this watch does something different: it sparkles.
Please, just look at that incredibly beautiful, hand-engraved dial. It has to be one of the most spectacular effects ever put on a watch dial. The black leather strap copy A. Lange & Söhne tremblage engraving is an extremely time-consuming technique and produces such a fine mottled surface on the dial that light reflects from almost every angle, creating a look resembling diamond particles sparkling in sunlight. The level of skill that is required to apply this finish right up to the edge of the relief engravings of the numerals and logo is astounding.
The high-end replica A. Lange & Söhne Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst stands out to me as the best “digital” watch that I have ever seen, and it is hard to argue that the watch is not incredible in its own right. This watch, for me, makes the top of the list of almost every category it will slip into, and is probably one of my top five watches of all time.
While the rest of the timepieces on this list are incredible in their own way, nothing comes close to the simplicity and beauty that the Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst displays.

Of course, there are some fantastic watches that didn’t make this list for a variety of reasons, but the ones I chose represent some amazing examples of a digital style display. I urge you to seek out your own favorite “digital” clone watches and to read more about the ones I find to be my favorites. Share in the comments which one was your favorite, or add your own that wasn’t on my list.
Hopefully by showing brands that there is a desire for these types of watches, more might be made and the list of favorites can grow ever larger!
