Timecodes are a feature in QT Pro not the basic version. You could cut out a section a little larger than you need with Trim and then "re-Trim" the result as the shorter audio wave display will change in scale and give you better fine control on the exact start and end point.  Otherwise you need Pro or a third party .mov cutter.

If you're set on using QT Pro, https://www.apple.com/hk/en/quicktime/extending/index.html provides the buy link.

And Audacity is free + super easy to use, so give Audacity a try + see if it works for you.

Hi Rohit,

Did you try my solution? It works on Mac High sierra. In finder you have to select the file and hit space bar.
And then you can click trim icon which will open wav file allowing you to drag time from and to.
