Has anyone come across a quality can opener built to last with ball bearings and o-rings?

I'm sick of all the can openers available wearing out after a year because they are junk.
The cheap ones and the expensive ones all seem to use the same cheap and dirty approach and only vary in terms of handle and styling.

This one has worked well for me, very solid and reliable, have had it for years. Unfortunately, the writing has worn off so I can't tell the brand.

Also, I've just noticed some rust appearing due to neglect, so I think I need to clean it up a a bit  :(
