There were twelve months, each divided into three ten-day weeks called décades. The tenth day, décadi, replaced Sunday as the day of rest and festivity. The five or six extra days needed to approximate the solar or tropical year were placed after the months at the end of each year. Each day was divided into ten hours, each hour into 100 decimal minutes and each decimal minute had 100 decimal seconds.
Bastante racional, hay que admitirles eso. Aunque poco práctico. Duró 12 años, aprox., hasta que Napoleón lo quitó en 1806.
BTW, el título del post es el día actual en ese calendario.
