The 500 days of decimal time

The Egyptians used it. So did the Chinese, and the post-Revolution French when in 1793 the First Republic decreed the use of decimal time – which was given the chop less than two years later. These days, decimal time survives only as Swatch Group's Internet time, measured in beats.
