The case of the minute repeater has two main functions, one is to protect the movement, and the other is to expand the sound through resonance. The larger the case, the lighter and stronger the material used, the more easily it will resonate and the longer the sound waves it emits. Steel alloys are louder than gold, and titanium alloys are more effective than steel.
