Just slap any kind of RGB lightning and bams. Price from 10 euro multiplies by 4-5 times :D.

The Water-resistant part should be a giveaway. I don't think a mechanical water-res KB exists.
If it does I'd be interested to see how they've done it.

Wait, innovation? "Water resistant keyboard" is hardly new. "Water resistant TKL keyboard" is ... the same thing? Also, literally the first search result on DuckDuckGo led me to this, which is even mechanical, for the same price. Of course I take that claim of water resistance with a serious heaping of salt, but at least it makes the claim. Here's another from Aukey from 2018.

Well, Kailh and Outemu both have water-resistant and dustproof switches that have an IP56 rating. Look for Kailh BOX and Outemu Dustproof.
