This is an example clock of conversion of time between the current ("imperial") time to the better ("metric") time. There are no timezones in metric time. All is calculated from UTC.

The idea is that the the time is easily divisible by base 10 like every other useful unit of measurement in the metric system

Note: we use the term "metric" very loosely (meaning "new", what we've actually created is a decimal clock). There already is an actual metric time standard you can read about here

- 1 day = 10 hours
- 1 hour = 100 minutes
- 1 minute = 100 seconds

- 1 "metric" day = 1 "imperial" day
- 1 "metric" hour = 2.4 "imperial" hours
- 1 "metric" minute = 1.44 "imperial" minutes
- 1 "metric" second = 0.864 "imperial" seconds

- 1 "imperial" day = 1 "metric" day
- 1 "imperial" hour = 0.416666667 "metric" hours
- 1 "imperial" minute = 0.69 "metric" minutes
- 1 "imperial" second = 1.157407407 "metric" seconds
