I have two clocks of this model, and both of mine take c-cells :) Actually, i just acquired one new in the plastic! Found it in a closet of an abandoned house a friend of mine was cleaning out.

I recently acquired this identical clock and the reason the 'C' cell battery which is required does not fit is because the adjustable feet are missing.  The base should be about 1/2 in. off the table.  Hope this thread is still active, I am trying to identify the name of this clock.

I just came into one as well. It takes a regular "C" cell, works like a charm.

That model definitely takes one "C" battery.  I have this same clock and it has been working great with one C battery for many years.  My problem is the clock just stopped working and I can not find anyone with replacement circuit board for it.
