Pierre Henri Gauttier Duparc (1772 – 1850) was a French Navy officer and admiral.

Gauttier Duparc captained the Chevrette in 1819 during the travels of Jules Dumont d'Urville, where he contributed to the discovery of the Venus de Milo. His interest for naval chronometres earned him the nickname of "Gauttier l'horloge" ("clockwork Gauttier").
