In the Mac-side of life, there is "only" one App for changing "hardcoded" the date- and time-stamps in picture-files in the moment:
The name: SetExifData
I use this App for many years and it works great for me!
Before you begin: _Safe all metadata into your files_ - why: see step 5.
1) Install the App.
3) Move one or more picture-files into the window
4) Change the date/time
5) Reload the Metadata into Aperture

This is quite simple to do -- change the date and NOT the time on one photo after selecting all photos you want to have that date, and it should change them all provided they all were shot within one 24 hour period. They cannot have the same time stamp, other than date, however which is and must be done in a relative manner. If shot near midnight, then there could be an issue.
Thank you for your responses. I will try the app suggested by HansKaden.
Aperture work for one photo or for several if the date is within 24 hours which is not my case.
I have several photos either taken with camera (wrongly time configured) and many old scanned picture. They were not scanned at the same date and thus I need to adjust the time.
I want to be able to select 50 photos and set the time at a time I define (which is the real date of the event). Seems strange that I have to use an external app for such a basic function.
