So, is șaisprezece pronounced "șeis..." rather than "șais..."? As a German, I would actually prefer that... (sorry! :-)

No, it's "şais...", or, more precisely: /ˈʃaj.spreˌze.t͡ʃe/.

Check this one.

Thanks, yes, I always try to pause between șai- and -spre- ....

Bet none of the sixteen watches work either and poor Maria is always having to move them as she does the lighters left on top of the fridge! Story continues as she tries to get Andrei to buy new batteries for them at the market...
