    $\begingroup$ @rudra Also, all indications are towards the answers given being correct, however your first comment is somewhat weird. Can you confirm the given answers to be incorrect? $\endgroup$

This can be too broad. My first idea is:

A clock. It only has numbers 1-12.

Thanks to @ABcDexter for putting the list of possible words together.

This might be a bit of a stretch but...

Lucky.

"If you look at my face you won't find"

Luck is often personified as a lady, who would obviously have a face.

"thirteen any place."

In the west 13 is considered an unlucky number. Though I admit this might be flawed because 13 is considered lucky in China.

    $\begingroup$ He's already stated clock isn't the answer. Plus it's been guessed, twice. Had to try something different. $\endgroup$

The answer is a

clock

That is because

a clock has only 1-12 on it’s face

  • $\begingroup$ @D.Mellow the numbers we see are 1 to 12. That’s on an analog clock. $\endgroup$ Dec 5 '17 at 15:20
  • $\begingroup$ Guess that when he says "any place" he negates the possibility to be a clock... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ But the term "face" is often used to refer to the part on the clock with all the numbers, so I think clock makes sense $\endgroup$

All possible words out of these are:

block
blowy
bolix
bulky
click
clock
cluck
cocky
colic
cubic
lucky
oculi
xylic


We have 13 words. Of these,

CLOCK fits the description.
Cubic can also fit.


Try it out in the app.

Sounds like a clock.

because

clocks have faces and 13 in them
