Description: 

After breakfast, Quentin takes his broken watch into a Boston jeweler's, but he seems more interested in the "dozen watches" in the store window, each set to a different time and "contradicting one another" (85). Looking at one of them, with its "hands extended slightly off the horizontal," he chooses the time that evening when he will commit suicide -- about 9:15.
