The jeweler in The Sound and the Fury to whom Quentin shows his broken watch appears only briefly, but is described in a few vivid details. He is "going bald," his hair is "parted in the center," and "the part runs up into the bald spot, like a drained marsh in December" (83, 85). He wears a jeweler's loupe that "left a red circle around his eye" (84). He seems familiar with the customs of Harvard students; Quentin's behavior makes him think he has been drinking, perhaps to celebrate the crew meet in New London.
