24 hours per day 10 hours per day
60 minutes per hour 100 minutes per hour
1,440 minutes per day 1,000 minutes per day
60 seconds per minute 100 seconds per minute
3,600 seconds per hour 10,000 seconds per hour
86,400 seconds per day 100,000 seconds per day

What does this mean for the length of hours, minutes and seconds? A second will get slightly shorter. Minutes will be a bit longer. And hours will take much longer. Metric hours are 2.4 times the hours as we know them now.
Convert "old" time to Metric time
1 metric second = 0.864 "old" second
1 metric minute = 1.44 "old" minute
1 metric hour = 2.4 "old" hour
