Hmm, actually it does not let me put the parens there:
$ perl6 -e 'say now() - BEGIN now;'
===SORRY!=== Error while compiling -e
now used at line 1
$ perl6 -e 'say now - BEGIN now;'
but I am not sure why is that interesting. Could you elaborate please?

Oh and Timo, I think, if I understand this correctly, they are both
monotonic in the mathematical sense.
Neither can decreases, can day?
The difference is that 'time' stops here-and-there and waits for a leap
second to pass before it resumes increasing.
