I am using different date formats for "timeformat_recent" and

  timeformat_recent=%b %e  %H:%M

which gives me nice, clean dates, where new files are immediately
distinguished from older ones:

       Sep  3  15:13
  2016 Mar 10  19:57

that works great, except that "timeformat_old" is used for files 6
months or older.

I would like to change it to 1 year or older, so that for newer files
(less than one year), I don't see the year.

How can I do it ?

One possibility is to modify MC's source code:

Change the "6L" (six months) to "12L".

(Another possibility is to use mc^2 and describe the logic with Lua.
This gives you more freedom than a fixed "1 year ago". For example,
here's a snippet that shows your timeformat_recent only for files
modified in 2016: )
