Time in the Imager Portfolio fictional universe was measured in somewhat unfamiliar units. A rough equivalence chart:
|Familiar unit||Imager unit||Comment|
|Minute||Unit||A bit smaller than a minute|
|Quarter hour||Quint||Fifth of a glass, or 20 units|
|Hour||Glass||Glass is 100 units|
|Day||Day||Day contains 20 glasses and is roughly similar to ours|
|Week||Week||7 days, as usual|
|Month||Month||Each month is exactly 35 days, or 5 weeks|
|Season||Season||A season is 2 months|
|Year||Year||A year is 5 seasons, or 10 months, or 350 days|
The days of the week are, in order: Solayi, Lundi, Mardi, Meredi, Jeudi, Vendrei, Samedi. Samedi is usally a half day for work, and Solayi is the equivalent of Sunday.
Each month is 35 days, and the first day of every month is Solayi.
There are ten five-week months to the year, grouped into five seasons, each of two months: Winter, Spring. Summer, Harvest, and Fall. The year begins with the first month of winter, and ends with the last day of fall. The months are: Ianus (W), Fevier(W), Maris(Sp), Avryl (Sp), Mayas (S), Juyn(S), Agostos (H), Erntyn (H), Feuillyt(F), Finitas (F).

Per the author:
A glass is longer than our hour, somewhere around 75 of our minutes,but measured in 100 units of Terahnar time, so the length of the day is roughly comparable, but Terahnar units are shorter than our minutes.
A quint is a fifth of a glass, or 20 units.
