You can probably use the type mapping.

In our build2 toolchain project we use it for mapping timestamp (aka 
std::chrono::system_clock::time_point) to uint64_t as a number of 
nanoseconds from epoch:

   #pragma db map type(timestamp) as(uint64_t)                 \
     to(std::chrono::duration_cast<std::chrono::nanoseconds> ( \
          (?).time_since_epoch ()).count ())                   \
     from(brep::timestamp (                                    \
       std::chrono::duration_cast<brep::timestamp::duration> ( \
         std::chrono::nanoseconds (?))))
