function get_real_time(): Number(gint64) {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_get_real_time()

Queries the system wall-clock time.

This call is functionally equivalent to GLib.get_current_time except that the return value is often more convenient than dealing with a GLib.TimeVal.

You should only use this call if you are actually interested in the real wall-clock time. GLib.get_monotonic_time is probably more useful for measuring intervals.
