The font is called "Clockopia" and you can download it here as a TTF:

https://github.com/android/platform_frameworks_base/tree/jb-dev/data/fonts

The font only includes glyphs for the digits 0 to 9, :, and the letters A, M, and P. If you preview the font in Windows it may be misleading, because all the other letters will be replaced with a substitute font.

Another sample:

Sorry about the drop shadow; I had nothing to do with it.

It seems that most Android devices actually replace this font with something else which is why you may have only seen it on the Android emulator.

According to the font file, it was designed by Jim Ford of Ascender Corporation, and it carries a Google copyright and trademark notice suggesting that Google digitised the font. According to the readme file at the above link, these font files are licensed under the Apache license 2.0 which means you're free to use them as you like, but if you modify and re-distribute them you must follow the license terms.

I think that might be unique to emulator. I couldn't find any Android documentation of it. Closest match I found was Play on Google Fonts by Jonas Hecksher enter image description here
