I know it seems like a tough decision, but Dictionary.Reference.com literally picks a word out every day after midnight and on the app shows it to me some time after 9:00 A.M.
it's interesting seeing which word it picks out each day
like there was a word for the time between Christmas and New Year's but I didn't share because I was a lazy ass (it was on Christmas day)
(also I believe the word was Christmastide)

"measurement of time"
....i feel like i must correct the dictionary...
There is no such thing. You can only "measure" the passage of time(even that, only indirectly, through physical events), not its current value because it has no such thing.
