[R] formating chron date times for printing

the date were created with chron with this argument

format=c(dates="Y/m/d", times="H:M:S"))

so I have the dates being displayed as

(10/06/22 12:00:00)

I would like to have them displayed as

"2010-06-22 12:00:00" or "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S"

and then I can convert these for mergeing with another data frame

x <- (structure(c(14464, 14464.0104166667, 14464.0208333333, 14464.03125, 14464.0416666667), format = structure(c("Y/m/d", "H:M:S"), .Names = c("dates", "times")), origin = c(1, 1, 1970), class = c("chron", "dates", "times")))

reading through old posts I found this:

format(x, enclosed = c("", ""))

which put the which surrounds the date time with "" instead of () now I would like to change the format of the dates to print like the above specified.
kindest regards,
