QUESTION: Thank you for the reply.  There was no battery with the clock; I bought it at a tag sale.  I can't find any other markings on the clock

Answer
It's probably an N size battery. They are 30.2 mm long and have a diameter of 12.0 mm.
Have a look here at the N size batteries.

They are much less common than AA or AAA but you can buy them at most grocery stores.
