If gravity were an emergent phenomenon, some relativistic as well as non-relativistic speculations claim it is, then a certain emergence time scale τ? would characterize it. We argue that the available experimental evidences have poor time resolution regarding how immediate the creation of Newton field of accelerated mass sources is. Although the concrete theoretical model of gravity's 'laziness' is missing, the concept and the scale τ?∼1 ms, rooted in an extrapolation of spontaneous wave function collapse theory, might be tested directly in reachable experiments.
