Well, as it is only a clock (counting SI seconds), it is unambigously
defined.  It is not a calendar, so you need a separate calendar to
name days and years for you, and to perform the mapping between TAI's
seconds and calendar entities.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
