Is it true that it is bad for the mechanics of a wrist watch to wind the hands in a counter-clock wise direction when changing the time ?

It depends on the watch.
If the watch does not disconnect the hands from the mechanism, to change times ... yes.

But most modern watches DO disconnect, so it doesn't matter.
