Abstract. This article proposes a measurement of Time in the mathematical models of Time. Any measurement consists in an establishment of a correspondence between the measured object and a number, or a vector, or some other mathematical quantity. Here we construct an isomorphism between the moments in any fixed mathematical model of Time and the real numbers, which isomorphism preserves the order. This construction includes a one-to-one correspondence between all moments of Time and the real numbers for each fixed mathematical model of Time. Moreover this correspondence preserves the order, i.e. it maps larger real numbers to the later moments.
