    Yes, most definately.
    There's a hand pulling tool to be used, if you want to stay on the safe side.
    Best to cover the dial, just in case something slips.

    You should be able to pull the minute hand off with your thumb and finger nails. Otherwise, a puller is necessary. The hour hand should come off easier :)
