I have not found one headset or bb that is waterproof.
Sealed means not sealed from water they are sealed from dust but to a point.
You still need to service them.

They all end up the same way some sooner then the other.
You need to keep up with the grease if you do a lot of rain rides.

Or if they made some ceramic races and bearings you would not need to worry about rust.

Dura Ace 7410 headset is pretty nice, cartridge bearings but looking on ebay they are stupid expensive. With that being said I would go with a King.
