This indeed is a very great question. I would say no it's not the same object but then again, define object. An object is a collection of atoms. The entire planet and everything on it could be labeled as a single object, or a collection of many.
The same way when cybernetic augmentation technology becomes available in the future and Billy will gradually replace all of his biological organs with mechanical ones, at what point does he stop being Billy? If ever? What if at some point, all of his limbs, organs, bones and everything have bee replaced and even his cerebral matter has been gradually replaced with nano-technology, making his brain in to an computer but with all of his original memories (as they were gradually transferred on to it) - does he stop being Billy at some point? Even if literally nothing he was born with is in place EXCEPT for his memories?2
