A 'gross' is an old term for 144 (12^2) of something.
A 'dozen' is still a common term and used for counting eggs.
The English (Germanic) number system shows etymological preference for 12:
… eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen
… acht, neun, zehn, elf, zwölf, dreizehn
The clock has twelve hours, there were twelve Tribes of Israel, etc.
