I felt that quake here at almost 1800km distance and can confirm the time.

Looking at the traces I think it would be difficult to characterise the event 
as instantaneous.

I was particularly struck by the huge very long period (~30min) waves shown on 
the Kermadec LISS seismograph shortly after the event (before they were 
obliterated by traces from subsequent hours).
