Let me add more:

* Integer, where the unit is implementation-dependent, available
  as ticksPerSecond (probably a nanosecond on common hardware, but
  without ruling out other resolution in specialized circumstances
  or in future).

* A new type, internally implemented like the above, but which behaves
  as a fractional number of seconds.

Both variants are applicable to both absolute times and time durations.
