Minutes granularity is not sufficient.  There are

Rounding up is okay, it's actually a good idea.  I'd
understand why "not now, and not before X" (minutes
or hours) can be helpful.  But seconds are IMO only
good for the well-known hh:mm:ss format; no chance
to confuse hh:mm with mm:ss.

Using only mmm (minutes, rounded up) instead of the
hh:mm:ss or DD-hh:mm:ss formats could make it clearer
that this is a time _span_ and not a time _stamp_.

Or only ssss (seconds, generously rounded up to avoid
silly states in the direction of "not now, come back
in one second".)
