Displays and keeps Decimal Time: 10 Hours/day, 100 minutes/hour, 100 seconds/minute

Design and date functions based on the Modern watchface by Łukasz Zalewski (http://forums.getpebble.com/profile/11983/Łukasz Zalewski)

The earth makes one complete rotation, fluid and continuous, around its axis per day. You can divide the duration of that rotation into as many or as few time segments as you want. Dividing it into 360 segments is as arbitrary as dividing by 100 or 100,000 or 1,974. 360 degrees is a human construct, not a heavenly absolute.

The base 6 time and coordinate system might be more familiar to you, but a base 10 system would be simpler to use. For example, try calculating the percentage complete a day would be at 6:43pm "practical" time. (It would be 77.9% complete.)

In decimal time, at 6:43, the day would be 64.3% complete. And when it was 77.9% complete, the decimal time would be 7:79.

The real world use of this watch face is, apparently, to help you think differently (and a little more accurately) about the world you live in.

Put that in your clock and wind it.

8MemberThe movements are based on decimal time, so there are 100 "ticks" per minute. However, I derive the decimal time from the Pebble watch's time system and every now and then the second hand "jumps" two decimal seconds.
