Ah, it turned out to be the fault of the "system-monitor extension". It has a checkbox 'move clock'.

To move the clock back:

  1. Right-click on the System Monitor extension on the panel, then select Preferences.
  2. Uncheck the Move the clock option.
  3. Restart GNOME shell: Alt+F2 , type r and hit enter.
