    Could be an ETA 1080 or variant.

    If you are suspicious, a close inspection of the dial/logo is probably in order, but the photo is not good enough for us to do that. Please attach a well-lit, in-focus, high resolution photo taken straight on.

    With that gold-plated case and a rather poor quality engraving on the movement (which doesn't even appear to be finished up to the standards one would expect from Piaget), I seriously doubt it was ever near the Piaget factory.

    Many people probably don't know that Piaget wasn't always the extreme luxury manufacture that they are today. Their first in house movement (Cal. 9P) only came out in 1956. The watch is therefore superficially plausible. In addition, Brunner/Pfeiffer-Belli show a similar watch in their large reference book on wrist watches with the same hands and a similar dial. The main difference is that that watch is automatic and has a solid gold case.

    Is your watch original, a frankenwatch or a fake? It is difficult to be sure. The main thing speaking against originality is the gold plated case - all of the Piaget watches in Brunner/Pfeiffer-Belli have gold or even platinum cases, even those with generic movements made pre-1956. But still, I would not (yet) rule out the possibility that there is nothing wrong with it.
