Main thing is you've actually seen the product and are happy with the quality.

We use decimal minutes at work to show the cycle time, currently it's 1.44 which means a new car rolls off the line every 86.4 seconds!

Aviation uses decimal fractions of hours, hours/minutes rounded to nearest 5 minutes, and hours/minutes rounded to the nearest minute! Not at all confusing...

Indeed, I was happy with the look of the whole unit.
