Oric and Intersil ICM7170 RTC ?

If you want to ask questions about how the machine works, peculiar details, the differences between models, here it is !
How to program the oric hardware (VIA, FDC, ...) is also welcome.

Thank you Symoon for this valuable clue.

You were right, the RTC was first designed for the Telestrat.

Here is what I found in Theoric magazine:

Interesting for Fabrice Broche's progarmme, but no information about the RTC itself (which chip, how to connect, etc.)

The expected article for the Atmos ("Nous verrons prochainement comment simuler la commande CLOCKSET sur ORIC-1 ou ATMOS") seems to have never been published. :(

And a little advertisement for the RTC also found in Theoric magazine:

Wow, 590 Francs... Around 90 Euros by now. I was happy when my parents would give me 10 Francs per week. :D

Sweet memories...
