SOURCE: Noisey Explorer 2,
The noise and the vibration is coming from the winding rotor loose axle. There can be two causes for it:
1) the rotor axle, bridge and setting (fixing) spring is getting loose. This will be quite easy repair as all it takes is to tighten all screws and replace or tighten setting spring.
2) rotor axle is worn, so, consequently the bridge and the setting spring as well. In this case the rotor axle must be replaced by the new one and re-bushed into the bridge and the new setting spring must be fitted. This takes quite a lot of work and new parts as well.
Can not tell you about the costs, but Rolex repairs has never been cheap. In the U.K.about a year ago I did the repairs as described in chapter 2 and customer was charged £195.00, parts inclusive, and it was cheap by the Rolex standards.
Do not forget to rate, please.

if it is a real Rolex, take it to aRolex dealer and they service it for free --- you only pay for parts --- if it is brand new the parts are still under warranty also

Self winding watched should not need to be wound as long as they are being worn.
To tell if the self winding mechanism is working, hold the watch close to your ear (hold it vertical, as though it was on your wrist) and rock it gently. You should be able to hear a ratchet operating (a soft clicking noise).
I can't help thinking your suspicion about the mechanism having failed, sound very likely.

sounds like you need a new watchmaker, Your watch is designed to be worn 16 hours a day an rested for 8 while you sleep and this should keep it running. there are several different mainsprings that can be installed depending on the age and your activity level. I would be happy to take a look at it for you.
