So I've just got a Nexus 4 (hooray for me!) and I don't know how I did it, but I've somehow got an analog clock perched over my Google search bar. I don't want it there.

It doesn't appear to be a widget - I can't just hold and drag it and remove it, and it's constant across each page.

How do I remove it / how did I put it there??

Have you checked that it's not a Live Wallpaper? Try choosing a different wallpaper and see if the clock is gone. – onik Mar 20 '13 at 11:09
Yeah I've just got a standard wallpaper selected... – David Masters Mar 20 '13 at 11:16

Go to settings-->apps-->clear data& cache of launcher(I think it is trebuchet ).

Thanks! That sorted it. Any idea why/how it got there in the first place? – David Masters Mar 20 '13 at 11:44
May be it was a bug. – Akhil Mar 20 '13 at 11:58

I've had this happen to me before and a reboot was enough to fix it.
