Hello all, newly registered member and first time poster here. We recently found this NGK Spark Plug "Man" wall clock in a second hand/collectibles shop in Burringbar (NSW - Australia) and we are wondering if anyone would be able to tell us something about it.

Size is 45cm(H) x 30cm(W), made of hard plastic possibly perspex. The spark plug man and NGK wording is painted/sprayed on - it is definitely not stickered.
The clock face is all metal - possibly aluminium or stainless - there is no magnetism element.
On the back are two hard rubber wall resters with deep screw sockets. The clock mechanism is by Aikosha (Aikosha Clock MFG Co., LTD Japan).

What we would like to know is the date this piece of NGK promotional item would have come about, if this item came out worldwide or just in Australia, and some history on the NGK Spark Plug Man would be wonderful.

Cheers all, Kez
