Know a good electrical retailer?

Good afternoon
I am looking for an outdoor plug socket for a robot lawnmower, and struggling to find a good one. I have been to the usual Hornbach, Bau & Hobby etc. But they are mostly the temporary use type (which I already have). I'd like to get one where I can leave plugged in, and the cable neatly fed through the underside, so the waterproofing is maintained.
Some version of the photo attached, but preferably better quality (to last). Could anyone recommend a location or store to try? I figured some specialist or "local" store might be better.

Thanks.

Might wish to search on "steckdose nass" or "steckdose outdoor", e.g.:

Also did you check Amazon for this particular model?

Thanks both

I did check Amazon, and also found the techstudio ones. Both of these are the two pin (euro) socket though... and although that will work for many appliances with the two pin Swiss plug, it wouldn't for others with the three pin.
Maybe I just stick with one with the flap open (plugged in all the time), it just seems to counter the "waterproof" aspect, especially near places that would be hosed, and permanently exposed.
