You could first do an N timestamp command on just the first file, using Tab to change it to the date it's already set to. That would get that date into the date history.

Then you could use the history to set that same date on another file, instead of your double pane idea. And you could tag all but the first file and use the history to get the initial date to increment for your second problem.

Or are you already doing that?
